    After installing Leopard 10.5, my Intel iMac mouse is always jumping to any of the corners of the screen whenever I'm trying scroll a window, pulling a menu option or when I just pass the mouse over a button, link or any other feature that normally react to the mouse cursor.

    This is really frustrating.
    Is there a workaround for this problem?
    I already update to 10.5.1 and the problem seems to be even worse.

    Sounds more like you have a hair stuck under the mouse, or the surface it's on is too shiny. I'd check that first.

    Is your computer the only (Mac) computer on its network? If not, it might be that someone is useing ScreenSharing to observe you and when they try to get out of ScreenSharing, your curser comes to the side. Make sure the "Screen Sharing" box is disabled (System Preferences --> Sharing --> Screen Sharing on side).

    This is a Personal computer at home (no body else).
    - Screen Sharing is disable.
    - There is no hairs in the Mouse or mouse pad.
    - And the cursor always jumps to the corners of the screen (not to the sides).

    This problem never show before. The problem started it right after installing Leopard on top of the Tiger (not a clean install).

    So, I think this is a real Problem not a setting problem. :(

    Mine does this all of the time. There isn't any one problem that's causing it. It's just tracking issues with the Mighty Mouse that seem to be occurrent in every one.

    It is somewhere between your mouse and the surface it is on.
