Mac Pro :: Mouse Jumps In SL?

Sep 29, 2009

I've been having a problem with my wired mouse. Ever since I installed Snow Leopard I have noticed the mouse making small jumping movements when I move it at a medium and slow speed

I was using a G5 Laser mouse and found it would jump around when I was moving it diagonally. It would make little jumps here and there randomally as i moved it diagonally, but it didn't happen when I moved the mouse vertically or horizontally.

I eventually got fed up and bought a Razer DeathAdder Mac Edition, but I still have the same problem. I thought it might be the mousepad, so I got a new one and it helped a little, but the mouse still jumps when I move it diagonally. It is tolerable for day to day tasks (although a little annoying) but when I am editing photos it can be really frustrating.

I have tried removing the Razer software but that didn't work. I installed USB Overdrive and Steermouse, but neither fix the problem.

These are not wireless mouses, both are wired, and have an advertised 1800DPI.

Laptops :: Mouse Behavior -- Jumps To Corner Of Screen

Dec 14, 2009

Intel iMac Dual Core 2.4 GHz with wired Magic Mouse.

This just started happening a few days ago. My cursor randomly jumps to the upper left corner of the screen for no good reason. I've cleaned the optical sensor on the mouse.

I used a test account and it didn't happen there (although I probably should have given it a longer test). I'm wondering if it's a corrupted preferences issue, but I can't find any likely prefs to trash.

Mac Pro :: MP Cpu Load Jumps?

Oct 6, 2008

My new Mac Pro is causing me a lot of grief lately. Using safari or firefox, when trying to stream video, the cpu load on the system jumps to 12 or 13 % on average, sometimes up to 20%. Things get extremely choppy, and it beachballs occasionally. Just using the secondary scroll wheel on my logitech MX revolution to bring up the dashboard makes it jump to around 5%. These are tasks my little crummy old laptop handles just fine (well not the dashboard, its a windows laptop). I have ten gigs of ram, but two of my sticks are having massive ECC errors (multiple thousands) and switch between being recognized as 2gig to 1gig sticks. I got the memory from OWC and am getting it replaced though. In any case, would the faulty memory cause this much of an increase in cpu load for something as trivial and streaming low-def video? Or should I call AppleCare because something more serious may be a problem? It just doesnt seem normal for a computer where everyone says that no one normally even utilizes all the power of to be struggling with such nominal tasks.

OS X :: CMD-N Jumps To User Name Instead Of Opening New Folder

Oct 5, 2009

Strange thing here. As far as I can remember, CMD+N always openend a new finder window. Since a few days, when I use the combination CMD+N the finder jumps to my "username". Only then will CMD+N open a new window.

This is kinda annoying. How do I make CMD+N just open a new window, no matter in what folder I am?

MacBook Pro :: Pointer Jumps Around When Using Trackpad?

Oct 24, 2009

I have a new UMBP 15" and just recently, without changing anything it seems. The pointer has serious issues moving around on the screen, especially in slow operation/movements it will jerk around and not stay where its supposed to be. If I just hold my finger in one place it will jump around very noticeably, inches even. Even clicking sometimes takes a few hard taps when just barely touching it would work. I've tried restarting and that didn't clear it up as well as changing some scrolling speeds. Just wondering if anyone else had seen this problem.

OS X :: Cursor Jumps And Clicks Randomly

Jun 28, 2010

My problem is that about every 15-20 minutes my cursor will start jumping around wildly and click randomly for a good 30 seconds then stop. Then I will get control of it again for about 5 seconds and it will just stop or give me trouble and then go back to the same thing. This goes on for a good couple minutes till the rainbow wheel of death comes and stays for a bit then I'm back to being okay. This happens repeatedly while I am on my computer. Which is a Macbook Pro. It happened mostly when I am on firefox which I deleted because it seemed to be the source of it for a while, but it would continue happening even after I got rid of it. I cleared my hard drive to see if that would help, but still nothing.

OS X :: Cursor Occasionally Jumps To Monitor Corner?

Feb 20, 2009

While I'm moving my cursor (seemingly on the desktop or some software) it will occasionally jump to one of the corners of my monitor. Otherwise it seemingly is unaffected. I just have to drag it back.

I'm guessing it's something in my preferences but I don't know what.

Dec 29, 2009

Over the last few weeks my battery health on my late '07 MBP has declined from about 79% to a terrible 39% this morning. However, just a few minutes ago something very strange happened.

OS X :: Finder - Jumps To Bottom Of Directory List?

Jan 4, 2010

Since upgrading to Snow Leopard I an issue with finder, when I open up any drive and then click say a folder/directory starting with the letter A, then click on a sub-folder, finder jumps to the very bottom of the top level folder/directory list. This forces me each time to then scroll back to the top where I was working.

It easier to see than describe the fault/feature, so hope this makes sense.

OS X :: Folder Jumps Across Desktop When Using Drag-and-dropped?

Jan 31, 2010

When I drag-and-drop a jpeg from a website into a desktop folder, the folder physically "leaps" several inches out of position toward the center of the desktop. This is strange...and annoying, because it makes the folder harder to reach with subsequent drags-and-drops.

Applications :: Scroll In Firefox 3.0/page Jumps Two Or Three Sections

Jul 4, 2008

That is, if I'm reading an article, and I put the cursor at the bottom of the scroll bar, and click once, Firefox will scroll two or three sections sometimes. This is very annoying, and didn't happen in Firefox 2.0. To clarify, I'm reading, and I click once, and want the page to jump down one section, and instead it jumps two or three. I've experimented with autoscrolling on/off, and this doesn't help the problem. Should I switch back to Firefox 2.0? One solution is to position the cursor barely below where I want to go, so Firefox can't jump ahead, but I find this annoying and would just as soon switch back to 2.0.

MacBook :: Page Jumps Suddenly - Quick Motion

Apr 16, 2009

New to this website and I'm by all means not a computer genius so please bear with me and I've been having some issues that I'm curious about and am hoping that I can get some answers hear. I bought a white Macbook about 9 months ago (switched from a PC) and I make great use of the two finger scrolling feature. I tend to put one finger on the bottom of the trackpad (just above the button) and scroll with another. Sometimes while I'm scrolling through a website, the page "jumps" as if I did a quick motion or hit the space bar to move the page down and I then have to search back through the page I was on to where I was reading, etc. I'm curious if my trackpad has issues (everything else is fine and it only "jumps" occasionally) and needs repair or replacement. If not, is there any way to prevent this?

MacBook Pro :: Sluggish Youtube Performance And Jumps To 50 - 60% CPU Usage

Jan 26, 2010

When watching a 720p video on Youtube, my Mac jumps to like 50-60% CPU usage. The frame rate slows and is almost unbearable to watch. I have also noticed that if I leave my MBP on for like >3 days then sooner or later my computer will get really sluggish and unresponsive. I end up having to restart because the CPU is going so insanely high. Okay, as I write this, I am having huge CPU jumps while doing nothing but typing this. Yes, Youtube is open in another window, but still.

MacBook :: Black 2.4 Trackpad Jumps/drags Not Responsing?

Jan 29, 2010

I've been searching the net for a solution but no luck. I have a late 08 Black Macbook 2.4ghz and the trackpad feels extremely rough. It does not look worn out one bit, but i have to press pretty hard and "push" the cursor. On the other hand my girlfriend has the same model in white and here trackpad feels like silk.

Whats the best solution for this? Is replacing the entire top case my only fix?

Applications :: ITunes Artist Browser Jumps To Top/Resets Itself?

Feb 27, 2010

After some Google trawling, I can't seem to find any answers to this question, so here goes nothing:

The 'Artist' bar on the left of the iTunes 9 interface will jump back up to the top of its scrollbar every time you click on an artist in it, and often when I select an artist that requires any scrolling to get to it it immediately jumps to the top of the list and thinks I clicked on one of those artists.

This has basically crippled my music browsing, or at least made it insanely annoying, so a fix would be nice.
I've tried trashing all the preferences and rebooting, to no avail.

MacBook Pro :: Cursor Jumps Around Randomly / Can't Get Any Response From Trackpad

Apr 20, 2012

The trackpad/cursor on my Macbook Pro vs10.6.8†acts stangely. Sometime the cursor jumps around randomly and can't get any response from the trackpad. The condition is getting worse and has about made the trackpad useless. I have tried using as wireless mouse and have had no problems whatsoever, which leads me to believe the problem is in fact in the trackpad/cursor; either the hardware or softeare associated with same.

Hardware :: Plug PC Into Airport/ It Kills Internet And Jumps To 100% CPU Usage?

Feb 9, 2010

I have a functioning network with a Mac Pro (primary box), Mac Mini, 3 Dells, 2 wireless IBM laptops and 2 wireless netbooks all connecting either wired or wirelessly through my Airport Extreme and an ethernet switch. Everything works well UNTIL I boot up and plug in my aging Gateway tower. It works fine and boots up nicely but when I plug it in to the network, it's cpu usage stat jumps immediately to 100% and it kills internet access for itself and to my other machines through the Airport even though the Airport's light is happily blinking green. Its been under my desk for a couple years but I'd like to retrieve the contents of it's hard drive via Fusion before I give it away.

I know its a Mac forum but maybe an Airport setting??

I'm desperate - I've already messed with it for a couple of days to no avail.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Arrow Cursor Pointer Jumps And Teleports Across Screen Every Second

Mar 13, 2012

my iMac has this glitch, the cursor jumps or teleports across screen every second. I move it and then it jumps again, always jumps to the same place, same exact pixel everytime. I try to move the cursor quickly (to open safary or hit stand by) but no matter where the pointer is across the 27" screen, it teleports like a clock. 

I changed batteries on the trackpad and magic mouse and it didn't work. I turned mouse off, left trackpad on and it didn't work. I tried using a wired mouse and it didn't work. this is obviously not related to the input device. 

I would like to restore the input driver with time-machine but I have no idea where the drivers reside in the machine. I also have no idea how to roll-back or reinstall such drivers on a Mac. 

this is not the jittery, erratic, jumpy bug. When this glitch is triggered and I have absolutely no clue how or why, sometimes it starts 1 minute after reboot, sometimes 30 minutes; when it is triggered it starts to teleport every second, the arrow jumps to the same spot. it's unbearable since it renders the machine useless. I have to press the power button to send it to sleep, resume and then the glitch is gone, only to come back 5 or 30 minutes afterwards. 

Finally, this thing happened last year in november. I wasn't able to solve it back then so I had to reinstall the whole OS Lion, that meant waiting 6 hours for it to download from the appStore (because Apple doesn't allow me to keep a copy LION on my system). I think that's plain silly since it's obviously a very mundane (but annoying) glitch and there's got to be a workarround that doesn't require system restore.
