    Hey, uhmm i recently got my mac and every once in a while my mouse would just like jump to a different area of the screen. I am running dual monitors and sometimes it would even jump to the other monitor. DAHM!
    What should I do? Getting so annoying.
    Thanks,
    Ken

    Are you using a mouse pad? If so, is it glossy? If no, is you table glossy.

    I personally found that all Apple mice seem to twitch like that every once and a while.

    Since I do Photoshop work, I can't have that happening so I switched over to Logitech. I don't think the Apple mice are very well built once you compare them to Logitech.

    It happens with my logitech G7, although it may be a result of either poor drivers or my mac mini being relatively low-end.

    Yeah, that might be it. I've found my mouse behaves erratically when placed on something that is somewhat glossy. If you have a non-glossy mouse pad, you might want to see if that solves your problem.
