I have a similar problem. Mouse becomes stuttery, and laggy every minute or so.
Since I updated to Big Sur this is driving me crazy. Any solutions?
I just resolved the problem by consecutively:Updated from Mojave to Big Sur a couple of weeks ago, figured the coast was clear (so to speak). But no, I've run into this bug as well (Magic Keyboard and Magic Mouse on a 2017 27" iMac). As mappyuk noted, seems to happen after waking the iMac. Another weird side effect is that the diacritical mark popup often appears when trying to type in this situation. I've reported this collection of problems to Apple as a bug.
Some USB 3 devices, hard drives in particular, can generate radio frequency interference that can cause Wi-Fi and Bluetooth devices operating in the 2.4GHz band to have issues communicating with your computer. Do not place hard drives or other USB devices behind the rear of your Mac near at the hinge of your screen. The antennas for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are located there, and USB 3 devices placed there may interfere with your wireless connections. See this white paper for more information.
Do you have any source for that document? Thank you!Any of you still having this problem (which I did), make sure you aren't keeping USB3 external drives around the back hinge of your laptops or desktops. I was confounded trying to figure out what was causing a jumpy mouse and keyboard, and found a note on Apple's tech docs that states:
I moved my plugged in Time Machine WD hard drive to the other side of the computer and the mouse instantly went back to normal.
Now, if I could only put the hair back in that was pulled out trying to solve this riddle, I'd be in business.
