    That's the default in Mac OS X. When you type, it hides the pointer. It's always done that for me, and I'm still on Leopard.

    I noticed this within 10 minutes of moving over to a mac. :D I never could get this feature to work in Windows.

    This has been a feature since day 1 using the "ObscureCursor" function. It may have even been in the Lisa OS. It is one of the things I always disliked most about Windows.....the damn pointer obstructing my view when typing.
