    I have a Toshiba QOSMIO X500 with 8GB ram, 1.2GB nvidia and Win& home premium.
    I use a Logitech wireless mouse m325.
    My problem is that the mouse and cursor stop a few minutes after startup from hibernation or cold start.
    You can move the mouse on the pad and after a few seconds or more the cursor moves, I have tried using the touch pad instead but same reaction.

    Is this an indexing function or something else. I use AVG antivirus and run CCleaner periodically .

    Another problem that may or may not be related is that the graphic driver just stops for a fraction of a second and error meassage says that it has stopped but recovered ok.
    Is this a heat related problem or a TOSHY QUIRK.

    Cheers from Sunny Australia , Graham

    Has it always done this? If not , have you tried a system restore to a point before it started? Have you ran a sfc/scannow file check? (system file check and repair)

    I think so , it is one of those conditions that you notice after a while probably after updates and installing more software.
    Thats why I thought it might be an indexing function.
    There is not a lot of disk activity while it is happening.
    I usually start the computer then go and do some other important stuff like a coffee etc,
    I have tried the Restore path but no joy there.
    It usually takes 5mins approx to come back to its normal mouse movement.
    Thanks for the suggestions.
