    Hi

    My iMac 27" with ML wakes in a few seconds after I click on the mouse.

    However, the mouse cursor only moves on the screen after a easy 60 seconds !

    I've checked all the settings and even another (identical) mouse, same behaviour.

    Any ideas on what could cause this problem ?

    :cool: ooops. nearly forgot the mouse is the apple BT mouse.

    thanks

    It's just where the Bluetooth is reconnecting isn't it?

    Not really, I can wake the iMac with the bluetooth mouse, but then once the screen lights up, the mouse is out of commission for about a minute. After that the mouse is fine again.

    So I don't think the bluetooth is at fault. It's more something the iMac is doing that is hanging the mouse cursor.

    Resuming from sleep I'd imagine - I have the same with my Magic Mouse and MBP. The Magic Mouse won't maintain a connection with the Mac when both devices are asleep so I'd assume the mouse sends a packet to the last known device (mac) to wake it up, then the OS does the pairing once it's woken up.

    When I talked to apple they indicated that the iMac 27" does not have a deep sleep feature, hence the bluetooth connection should persist.

    Actually, I don't think this is an expected feature of the iMac as it is not user friendly. Initially I thought the mouse was off, then I check the batteries, etc. A confusion Apple would not want to entice into its users.

    The iMac also has a turbo-drive and I was wondering if the wake from sleep of this drive was not a possible cause.

    Let me take a guess: You don't use a Magic Mouse?
