Default PCBSD9.1-RC1--64 and frozen mouse
My optical mouse freezes as soon as the GUI launches. I had the same problem with the PCBSD9.1 Beta, and it renders 9.1 useless to me.

Is it a USB device? Does unplugging and re-plugging make any difference?

It's USB.

My system is so jammed into the cabinet that pulling everything out to unplug and re-plug the mouse is not something I wish to undertake. Particularly when the mouse works fine with all of the various Linux versions I've had on my multi-partitioned machine, including the Mint 13 version I'm typing this from.

My USB mouse froze last time I booted up PC-BSD (9.1-RC1 64-bit), when it got to the login screen. I simply unplugged the mouse and plugged it back in again. It's a Microsoft mouse.

Having found this thread, I have to report my findings.

I used to have this same problem in Windows 7 occasionally, but cured it by disabling USB power-saving. I've never had this problem in Ubuntu.

Thanks for reporting this problem. I knew we had a problem with USB mice freezing at random times, but i'm glad you let us know it's not working at all for you. I'm going to submit this to our bug tracking software and see if we can get our guys to have a look at it. I'll let you know if we come up with a solution for you.

This should be fixed in the upcoming RC2. Let us know if it is still an issue.

I just tried 9.1 RC2 USBFULL 64 bit, and my mouse is still frozen when the GUI appears and a mouse is first required.

Default PCBSD9.1-RC1--64 and frozen mouse
Can you boot to the text-based emergency console and does the mouse
cursor move there? I'm trying to figure out if its an issue with the
systems "moused" or xorg itself.

Default random mouse freeze
9.1 r2 amd64 4.8.4

I mentioned in a previous post that i too had mouse freeze.. the following info might help you guys fixing this..

If i leave my system alone for several hours, (no screen saver or power adjustments) regular default. the mouse becomes erratic and slows down, i must do a complete system reset, then everything works again for several hours, so basically i reset every 24 hours to avoid the problem. also, when i get the "reset button" screen, it looks like the top part of screen is crashed, random lines, characters, dots... looks like a 1980's video test screen....

the mouse in an optical logitech on usb, i'm going through a powered usb expander.
