    At work im working on a mac pro 2x 2.8ghz quad core xeon.. when it comes out of sleep the mouse acts fine for about 5 secounds.. and then starts darting all over the place and then freezes in one area. I can stick click but not move the mouse.

    This is what i have tried so far.

    1. disconnecting and reconnecting the mouse.
    2. Looked in console for any weird mouse errors.
    3. put it back to sleep and woke it back up.
    4. restarted.
    5. changed the energy saver options.
    6. looked around mouse and keyboard cp for options.
    7. tried another mouse.
    8. tried using a mouse pad.

    this is what has worked, but only works for about 5 secounds before it goes crazy again and then stops moving.

    1. force quit the finder.

    if i restart it, its fine till i put it to sleep and then it all starts over again.

    the system is fully patched to 10.5.6 with all the efi updates from apple update.

    i've had a somewhat similar but not near as bad problem. after waking from sleep it takes about 5-10 seconds before i can move the pointer.
    but after that it's fine....

    I have the exact same problem, which started after I updated to 10.5.6. I've no idea how to fix it though - I've just stopped using sleep mode altogether.

    That's annoying! I was going to say use another mouse until I saw you'd got that covered. Short term; I'd turn off auto sleep and just have display sleep.

    Have you tried using different USB ports to see if that helps?

    It could be a hardware issue, but if you've tried everything else you could reinstall the OS.

    yes i have tried different ports... no luck.

    it may have to do with 10.5.6 as i recently upgraded him.

    Figured I'd chime in here and say that I too am having this exact same problem!

    Put the machine to sleep and upon wake up the mouse acts all kinds of crazy and eventually freezes.

    Glad I am not alone,

    so i guess the Mac Pro is just buggy? for a seven thousand dollar machine this is pretty unacceptable.

    MOUSE FREEZE MacPro 10.5.6 after ScreenSaver FCP-Hard Boot reqd

    Yep same problem. Tore everything out of my new MacPro 2.8 8Core, thought the KONA 3 drivers were causing or the plague of bad memory I got twice from Memory America. Tried everything all of you have tried except a different USB Port...Seems to me this is a bug with OS X 10.5.6 that Apple has already denied to me and advised a Motherboard swap! It smells like System 7.5 all over again...instability and no responsibility!:(:apple::eek:

    Also seems to only exhibit this problem on MacPro/INTEL MACHINES only...

    Me too

    hey folks, exact same thing is happening with my mac pro. after reading through blogs, I thought the solution would be resetting the smc but that did nothing.

    It's interesting you mention the KONA 3 drivers and bad ram. I have both. Removed the ram, sent in for replacement, and still no solution. Still have KONA drivers installed, have you tried uninstalling those? Maybe I'll give it a whirl and see how it goes.

    We have been discussing this issue for 3 months on the Apple Support Forums. I don't think we will get any love from Apple until Snow Leopard arrives but please check out my thread.
