    I've seen some posts on this issue, but I was wondering if anybody found a solution yet.

    When I move the mouse, the mouse pointer lags and/or jumps past where I expect it to stop. It takes twice as long to do things because I have to constantly pause and readjust the pointer's position. It is VERY annoying.

    I have a small, wired Logitech mouse connected to a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.7.5.

    does it do it when you use the touchpad?

    Keep hitting it with flyswatter until it stops moving. ;)

    Same problem-solved by replacing batts in magic pad

    I experienced the same issue, and after zapping pram and various other efforts failed, what worked for me was replacing batteries in my magic pad, which had a low battery indication.

    Sounds like a faulty mouse and/or low batteries. Have you tried using a different mouse or the trackpad?
