I have recently installed a Logitech LX7 Cordless Optical Mouse on my PC which is running Windows XP Home SP2. Generally it works fine but I've found if I don't do anything for a certain length of time, perhaps only 5-10 minutes, I cannot use the mouse at all to select anything and the Taskbar is also unavailable to view (it's normally hidden at the bottom of the screen). However, I've found that by pressing Ctrl + Esc to display the Start Menu and then clearing it by clicking on the Desktop, the mouse functions are available again and also the Taskbar comes into view.

As you can imagine this is annoying. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing the mouse software but still I get the above problems.

Any ideas as to a solution?

I would say uninstall the software and leave it off. there shouldn't be any reason windows can't use the mouse without the third party software.

also a side note - some cordless mice for laptops like that have a power save feature, have you tried just clicking the mouse a few times to reconnect it with the computer.

Tried uninstalling the software as suggested and although the mouse continued to work OK, the same problems as stated once again occurred.

does the whole system hang or is just the mouse unresponsive?

have you tried hooking your old mouse up at the same time and see if that one works when your new one does not work.
