    Welcome, aside from your own strange issues :p :) was the iMac asleep? and then you woke it and the mouse/keyboard didn't work? .

    If so , restart your iMac, to do this ... go to the Blue Apple logo in the top left of your screen, click it, in the drop down menu which appears select restart,
    let us know how you get on, hope this helps

    Your right of course , my bad . I am currently in recovery from operation and the medication makes me slightly more than dozey at times .

    Do a hard off by pressing and holding the power button for 5 or 6 seconds , then restart the machine while at the same time holding down the 'Command' , 'Option' , 'P' and 'R' keys , this will reset your PRAM, hopefully it'll help. although any settings not saved will be lost.

    Edit>
    You could also take a look at the page linked below on the Apple support site detailing USB troubleshooting.

    if that doesn't help try reading this Apple support document for troubleshooting USB mice
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1986

    Both worthy of a read to help isolate the cause of USB issues on a Mac

    let us know how you get on .
