Hardware :: Mouse Buttons Suddenly Stop Working?

Nov 13, 2010

For a while now I've had a recurring problem that I can't figure out. The buttons on my mouse will suddenly stop working; I can move the cursor around the screen, but the mouse buttons (all of them, plus the scrollball) do nothing.

It's not a problem with the mouse (so it might not belong in this forum), because I've tried other mice and had the same behaviour. I don't know if there's a pattern, but I think I've only had the problem since I've started running the new Football Manager 2011 game.

OS X :: Keyboard Volume Buttons Stop Working

Nov 24, 2009

Relevant hardware: new Mac Pro, aluminum wired full keyboard, external speakers (Line Out). Every now and then, the volume up & down keys (F11 & F12) stop working. (Usually seems to happen upon waking from sleep, but not certain of pattern yet.) The volume keys still make the translucent volume graphic pop up, and they still make that pop-up's slider move up and down, and they make that feedback/confirmation "blip" sound grow louder or softer. But, this has no effect on the actual volume (except if I move it all the way down to Mute; that works).

I can only change volume with the mouse -- in the menu bar or in System Preferences. The keyboard volume buttons have no effect on those sliders, when this problem arises. All the other F-keys continue to work properly, so it's not a general keyboard or F-key issue. Only volume up/down. If I restart the computer, the problem is fixed. And I just noticed that if I go into System Preferences and change the Output to "Built-In" and then back to "Line Out," that fixed the problem too. At least, for now.

OS X :: Expose / Dashboard Buttons Sometimes Stop Working

Mar 13, 2010

I have F8-F12 (without fn) mapped to spaces/expose/dashboard, and ever since I installed Snow Leopard, at random times my computer will stop registering them as "hey, open up dashboard" and interpret it as "hey, F12 was pressed, let's send this along to Firefox or Terminal or whatever". Sleeping or user switching doesn't help, I need to reboot.

Software :: Mouse And Keyboard Work Momentarily - Suddenly Stop Responding

Jul 26, 2008

I have a PowerMac Dual G4 @ 500mhz that has issue with waking up from sleep. Running Tiger 10.4.11 with a fresh install of it on there. 512mb memory populating all 4 slots. I've verified permission, verified the HDD via disk utility. I've also run MacOSXmemtest that I purchased and that came up clean. I've also reset the PMU. When I wake the computer up from sleep it will usually wake up to a display and then the mouse and keyboard work momentarily (USB MS keyboard and Logitech Mouse) and then I'll get the beachball of death. The mouse and keyboard will then stop responding completely. I have to manually restart the computer but it seems to work great if it doesn't go into sleep.

Applications :: Network Setup Would Suddenly Stop Working?

Feb 15, 2009

I have had my iPhoto library on a USB drive attached to Time Capsule for some time with no problems. I recently upgraded to iPhoto '09, and still had no problems, so not sure that's related. The library updated ok, and I played with Places and indexed some Faces over more than one session, no problems. Upgraded iPhoto on all the macs and tested their access to the library ok.

Suddenly now, none of the network macs can open the library. iPhoto launches with no pictures visible and has a spinning beechball. I have to Force Quit iPhoto. Same on all macs.

I then copied the library from the networked drive locally to a mac, and iPhoto could then open it perfectly ok. So I guess the library is not corrupt either.

Any ideas why this network setup would suddenly stop working?

OS X :: Trackpad Hand Gestures Suddenly Stop Working?

Feb 8, 2010

I restarted my MBP to install some updates and when I started working on it again I noticed that the trackpad gestures had stopped responding. This has happened to me before but I have no idea why. I know that when I reboot it again, that they will start working again, but it's annoying to restart everytime the gestures stop working.

Safari :: Hyperlinks Suddenly Stop Working When 2 Or 3 Tabs Opened?

Mar 20, 2012

I may have 2 or 3 Tabs open and decided to open another, example Amazon. I start to look around and 'say' I want to find a CD cover to make a copy of to paste onto something, I find said CD and then all of a sudden nothing works, no hyper links, zero. The only way I can them to work again is to copy the present page I am on, open a new Tab, paste the link in and all works again? But the not the original Tab. Plus if I try the 'ctrl _ T/pad' to open the options you then get (to then copy subject for one) nothing, yet I tried this in Google Chrome just to test and see if that works and it does. As I was even writing this everything suddenly stop, could not even 'highlight' some of the text and copy (cmd + C) .........

As the title says - over time it seems the mouse shortcuts stop working (such as mouse 4 or mouse 5) but the keyboard shortcuts continue to work.

Has anyone experienced this? The only fix is restarted... I tried a sudo killall dock but this doesn't fix it.

Windows On Mac :: Keyboard And Mouse Stop Working After A Few Seconds On 7 64-bit?

Jan 6, 2010

I have a 27" imac and I've installed windows 7 64-bit using boot camp. Everything works except the wireless keyboard and mouse, which work for about 20 seconds after starting up and then stop. The bluetooth control panel says they're still connected, but they aren't working, so I'm forced to connect an old wired kb/mouse.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Keyboard & Mouse Stop Working After Sleep

Mar 20, 2012

I just upgraded to Lion, on a MacMini, and now everytime I use sleep mode, I can't wake my lion up again because key presses or mouse clicks don't work anymore. I can still move the pointer, but OS does not respond anymore to mouse clicks or keyboard. Have to power down, then start up again. Keyboard & mouse then work until the next time the lion sleeps. 

This is quite annoying, as I'm an intermittent style of user who relies on sleep mode a lot.   

Lion is nice when it works, but it has introduced problems I've never had before. And booting into Lion is way slower than Leopard or Snow Leopard were. At least double the time, or more. 

Should mention I'm also using a Logitech denovo wireless keyboard and a Logitech M570 wireless trackball. 

Connecting a standard USB keyboard and/or mouse, once the lion has gone to sleep, does not solve anything. The OS still  does not respond.

Hardware :: Magic Mouse Stop Working After Software Update

Dec 26, 2009

I got the Magic Mouse yesterday. It was working fine after I installed the stuff using software update which it required. Then I installed snow leopard earlier today and the middle scroll and the multi-touch side to side gestures have stopped working since. The videos on the preference pane are gone and it now displays as I'd imagine it would for any other mouse: [URL]

Hardware :: Changing Mouse Buttons On Microsoft Mouse?

I have a Microsoft Intelli Mouse( Link ) and it has 4 buttons. How do I change what the side buttons do? Under System Pred > Keyboard and mouse, the only options are to which side is Primary, and Zoom scrolling. All I want to do is set it so the left and right side buttons go forward and back in explorer, instead of scrolling

Hardware :: Getting The Most Mouse Buttons?

May 19, 2008

getting the MOST mouse buttons? Logitech seems to have the most that I've found, and I already know about:

- MX Revolution (don't like the battery situation)

- G5 and MX-518 (too few buttons)

Any other recommendations?

I'm planning a keyboardless Quake Wars setup, and what I have in mind requires 13 mouse "buttons"--but I do include scroll directions in that total. The Revolution has exactly 13 functions. I'd prefer corded, but the G5 has only 9 (+/- can't be configured) functions and the MX-518* has only 10 of that. (Saitek Cyborg has 11 or 12 buttons, since I do count the 4-way hat, but Mac support is questionable.)

Driver support doesn't worry me--I'll use ControllerMate, and will check with their forums before I buy.

Accuracy is important, but most high-end mice seem to have good tracking anyway.

*Some sites say the Logitech MX 518 has horizontal scroll. But in pictures it has no arrows next to the wheel, so I'm suspicious. Can the 518's wheel be tilted left/right?

OS X :: Can I Use Non-apple Mouse With More Than 2 Buttons?

Jun 14, 2009

When I plug in the apple mouse and go to mouse settings it lets me configure not only the two clickers, but all the extra buttons on my mighty mouse. However, I hate the mighty mouse scroller, so I want to switch to a new mouse. However, when I plug in the new mouse it only lets me right click, left click and scroll. My other mouse has 2 extra buttons I want to configure to open quicksilver and Expose all windows (like I had setup with my apple mouse). Can I do this with a non-apple mouse?

OS X :: Both Mouse Buttons Are Right-click?

Nov 4, 2009

So I just installed USB Overdrive on my 10.6.1 iMac 2.66, and one of the buttons was conflicting; I thought it might be an issue with Apple's official mouse & keyboard prefs. So I went in, and I accidentally switched the right click/left click, and now I cannot click on ANYTHING because both buttons are right-click. I tried restarting in the hopes that USB Overdrive would override the system prefs, but no dice. Is there any way I can manipulate system prefs without the use of clicking?

I also tried hooking up another mouse to no avail, and sticky keys are off.

OS X :: MOuse Buttons - Change There Function?

Apr 26, 2009

I got a Logitech G5 Refresh mouse, and have had it for allmost 2 years now. I'm a windows man that has just turned in to OS X about 14 days ago, s� still have a very lot to learn..

But the thing is, that i was used to - in Windows, that i could browse forward and backwards with the 2 buttons placed close to my thumb on the mouse, instead of the browser/applications forward and backwards buttons..

Is there a way to do so in OS X? I've looked in Preferences, but i did'nt really find anything useful..

Hardware :: Mighty Mouse Buttons Not Customizable?

Jan 1, 2009

I received a wireless Mighty Mouse for Christmas, and just today I decided to try customizing the buttons. I open up Mouse Preferences, and when I try to change the function of any button, it doesn't work. I can click the drop down menu to change button 3 or button 4 to Spaces, or one of the expose functions, but when I use the buttons, they still do (what I assume are) the default functions -- button 4 allows me to go back in my browser, and button 3 (the ball) allows me to move the mouse to scroll the page. The only button I can change the function of is the default secondary button -- I can make this button do anything I want, but not the others, including the primary button.

Hardware :: Magic Mouse Buttons Do Weird Things?

Sep 3, 2010

just now my magic mouse went wild. When I switch it on and it automatically connects to my macbook air it acts as though the left button is clicked all the time. That means whenever I move my mouse it looks like that: [URL]

(I DID look and the mouse button is not jammed or anything). However interestingly the same happens when I use my touchpad. Whenever the mouse is connected and I try clicking on my touchpad it does not work. Really as though the left button was clicked. When I disconnect the mouse all is fine again. I tried restarting the laptop and putting out the batteries of the mouse. Nothing worked so far.
