    I've noticed that when I'm using my iMac, the pointer on the screen just disappears. I have to end up right clicking on my mighty mouse to make the pointer appear, but I just want to know why this is happening?

    It usually happens when I'm on safari. Could this be an issue with the mouse or an iMac software/hardware thing?

    Are you mousing over Flash-based content in Safari? Some Flash games hide the mouse.

    Are you using the keyboard? Keyboard activity often obscures the cursor - even something like paging down.

    default behavior in most apps is to hide the mouse while typing.

    I can't remember if its over a Flash-based content or not. It happens when I'm on the ign.com website, and it just randomly happens on and off. The next time I experience this, I will make an even more detailed experience of whats happening.
