    So, MB 5.1, Lion 10.7.2 with all the updates.

    Now after the iTunes/Java update couple of days ago some weirdness has started.
    No idea if problems has anything to do with those.

    In short :

    - the Dock wont jump up when the cursor is moved down to it
    - the cursor turns into a "imput text" type, like I
    - the cursor doesnt react to links (normally arrow turns to a finger)
    - the cursor does trigger the any activity up in menu bar (ia. when you go to
    :apple: menu, when moving the cursor over the "sleep,restart, etc" options they dont turn blue, like being active. but they react to click.
    -hot corners do not work.

    This all happens after even a short period of inactivity, like 2-3 minutes.
    It is remedied if I put the computer to sleep, and wake it up.
    It is not remedied if I relaunch the Finder.

    Tried all the normal stunts.

    Any Ideas?
    This is seriously pi$$ing me off.

    I´ll be damned.

    Have a logitech usb mouse that uses the dongle stick. Somehow the stick started to act up in usb port 1 causing this weird phenomena... Port 2 no probs, port 1 and intermittent probs..

    Oh well.
