Mac Mini, cordless mouse, hanging after sleep.

Message #1 - Posted 2005/04/05 - Des O'Donoghue

I have a 1.25 Mac Mini running 10.3.8 and use a Logitech Cordless Click Plus ! optical mouse.

Occasionally when I bring the mini out of sleep the mouse hangs and the only way to get it back is to reboot. Trying to pair the mouse and its unit doesn't make any difference.

I'm from a Windows background so not too sure what troubleshooting steps I should take...

Do you have Logitech's mouseware installed? Is it the current version or the one that was on the CD? If you don't have it you can get it on their site.

Logitech DOES support Macs, so you should talk to their tech support about it.

I'll check out the software side thanks... (don't know why I didn't think of that - it would be my first port of call in windows...)

Yeah, you can get tricked sometimes because mice work without drivers anyway (even on XP this is true of most mice), but with wireless there's another level of communication to foul things up :), especially ones that have a single base communicating with both a mouse and KB.
