View Full Version : mouse freezing when waking up from sleep

Dec 28, 2008, 05:08 AM
my air is rev B with SSD. when i open the lid to wake it up from the sleep, the mouse is freezing for couple of seconds and then back to normal.

it's not tthe whole OS freezing i believe, because ical event suddenly appears on the desktop when the mouse is freezing. so it's not the system i guess.

could it be the lack of voltage because of coolbook? but the system is so stable with these new lower voltages settings i applied a week ago.

yes, i use coolbook too on rev B.

Have you tried removing Coolbook and trying?

Neither of mine ever did that, I also would remove cool book, and try it for a few days.

tried removing coolbook. it doesn't seem to be its problem. it happened sometimes though, not everytime i wake it from sleep.

This is just a guess but it may be that the LED "instant on" is faster than the mac itself at waking up. I notice the display is like an image capture, not actually realtime, until the mouse starts moving again. My delay is only about a second or two.

i dont think it is, because iCal's event suddenly shows up when the mouse is freezing.

My MacBook Pro (early 2008) does this too. Not just an MBA issue.

Ever since I downloaded the latest version of OSX (10.5.6), I have had the same problem...computer won't recognize the mouse after it wakes from sleep. The only way to fix it is to do a hard shut down, which my RAID card hates. Now I can't sleep the computer anymore. Serious drag. Why doesn't Mac take responsibility for anything? I switched from PCs and am seriously preturbed by the continuous "it must be you" response I get from Mac's "customer support" on any technical issue.

Check this out -- rather than answer the same question posted by a bunch of other people, or take responsibility for the issue and fix the problem, Apple simply archived a similar thread on their website and won't allow anymore replies. I'm frustrated to say the least.

I found a new thread on Apple's website -- if you have a Mac Pro and upgraded to 10.5.6, you are not alone in experiencing this problem. THIS IS NOT YOUR FAULT!!!!!


Please tell Apple about the above thread so they fix this damn problem!!!!
