IMac :: I7 Mouse Cursor Jumpy And Impossible To Control

Dec 14, 2009

My i7 iMac arrived today with no screen issues and no major problems at all (after scouring the forums the past few weeks, I was a nervous wreck waiting for it). I ordered on Black Friday and believe I have one of the most recent batches with, I cross-my-fingers hope, none of the screen problems that have been reported. However, I am about to gouge my eyes out because of a blasted erratic mouse issue in OSX. I am using a Razer Naga (though it is still a problem with every other mouse I hook up) and regardless of the settings, the cursor is jumpy and impossible to control at times.

I am Bootcamp running Win7 64 and have zero mouse issues on that side of the computer. Its only when I boot into OSX that I have the mouse problems. I have tried the Naga drivers and two USB/Mouse shareware apps, all to no avail. Otherwise, the iMac runs like a dream. In WoW with Ultimate Settings I get 50 fps in Dalaran and 120+ out flying in the world. LotRO runs great as well -- with the recommended settings I am at around 60 fps at all times, even standing at the Prancing Pony in Bree.

IMac :: 3-5 Second Response Delay Of Mouse Or Cursor?

Oct 18, 2008

This Imac 7.1 2ghz, 20" is less than a year old. I switched because it promised friendlier functioning especially for my wife. I use Parallels for XP/Quicken only. What drives me crazy is a 2-5 second delay for almost anything I do: scroll, copy, move cursor, any art or photo ops and TYPing. I read all the things to reduce the Pinwheel and did them. Finally I added 2 more Gigs of memory (total 4) and it made no difference. Activity monitor shows tons of free memory.

I cannot believe that I use my tiny Asus to type most of my stuff now because on the iMac I can type something then in the middle of a word, count 'one thousand 1-3 then sometimes get a pinwheel for 2 counts and it resumes typing. It does not seem to matter much if I close everything else (wow that eliminates all that handy windows stuff Apple is famous for).

IMac PPC :: Why Mouse Won't Work - Cursor Is Not Moving?

Apr 23, 2012

I just got a used iMac (running 10.5.8) with the metal keyboard and mouse. I unpacked the box, plugged in the computer, hooked up the keyboard and mouse.The computer screen came up. I can move around a little via the keyboard's arrow keys but the cursor will not move via the mouse. I got it to move a little by swiping my thumb across the back but that is it. I switched my older, working, keyboard and mouse to the newer machine and it didn't work there. I switched the newer metal keyboard and mouse my older iMac and they worked just fine. What could be going on with the new (but used) computer? I have tried every port for the mouse, keyboard as well as every back port but nothing moves the cursor.

IMac (Intel) :: No Mouse Cursor In Airplay?

Jun 20, 2014

I have a few accounts on my Mac (Mavericks) that I use to train, operating my Mac with Airplay mirroring for demonstration.  While in my primary account, Airplay (AppleTV3) works fine.  Until recently it also worked fine while in my other accounts (all Admins). 

About a month ago, Airplay with the secondary accounts no longer shows the mouse cursor.  I can see the effects of the mouse (Dock magnifies, apps still open, etc.), but I can't see the actual cursor moving around the screen.  My primary account continues to show the cursor during Airplay. 

I created a new user account (Admin), and the new user account also is missing the cursor during Airplay.  Updated all software, restored the AppleTV.

IMac (Intel) :: Folder Icon Is Blocked With Mouse Cursor?

Aug 22, 2014

My colleague reported me something a bit strange a creasy. They told me that the icon folder is following the cursor mouse. (It's not a joke) . I just experienced this right now, and I am going to explain step by step, what I did. 

I opened Finder

I selected a folder to move it into the Favorite section (in order to access it quickly via the favorite bar)

I placed it between Desktop and Document.

While I move that folder, the folder icon appear close to the mouse cursor. This is normal

BUT when I released my button mouse in order to create the folder favorite, (between Desktop and Documents), the folder icon remind on the cursour mouse, and follow it. 

Nothing freeze, I can mouve the mouse but it do not react to a click. 

To "remove" the folder icon, I have to relauch the Finder (cmdt+shift+esc), or some time, it desappear after 3-4 minute.

When the icon is remove, the mouse is not working perfectly for a moment. 

We have this problem while we mouve a pdf, or a .doc file.

My colleague work on iMac 10.9.4.

This problem happen while we want to create a favoris to a local folder or to a remote folder. 

4/6 collabrators have this problem and there are all in the same office.

The particularity, they have all a wireless mouse, but I do not think the mouse devise cause this problem..

OS X :: Mouse Not Working After Wake / Mouse Cursor Is Beachball And Not Spinning

Jun 6, 2008

When I wake from sleep, my mouse cursor is a beachball that is NOT spinning. I can use my mouse like normal, move it, and click on things, but its still a beachball. I beleive it stays like this until the mouse is actually supposed to be a beachball (when I open a few programs at the same time and the computer starts "thinking"), then it starts spinning and after that it goes back to the normal black arror cursor.

Might be a problem from the 10.5.3 update? anyone else experience this?

Hardware :: The Mouse Have A Lag In The Cursor?

Feb 6, 2009

I am using an Apple Wireless Mighty Mouse, and have been since i got my macbook about 9 months ago. I love the mouse, but i have noticed a lag in the cursor. At random times, the mouse cursor starts to lag. When this occurs, i will either clean off the lens or turn it off and back on. Most of the time, these alternatives do not work. I then just wait and it eventually turns back to normal.

OS X :: Unable To Use Mouse Cursor In 10.5.7

May 18, 2009

Ever since installing 10.5.7 I have been experiencing problems with the mouse cursor. On my intel iMac's primary display (but not my external display)... the mouse cursor will disappear while moving the cursor, then reappear after the movement is over, so it looks like the cursor is flickering rapidly when it's in motion. This flickering problem will happen with a normal cursor only intermittently (usually when the cursor is over a scrollbar), but it always happens when the cursor changes to a crosshairs for screen capture (command-shift-4). As mentioned above, this only happens on the internal LCD, not my external monitor.

MacBook Pro :: How To Fix Mouse And Key Cursor Lag

May 7, 2010

I'm switching over from Vista so still trying to get used to snow leopard. Couple of things that are bugging me:

1) The trackpad seems to lag slightly when I select text or re-position windows on the screen. What I mean is that when I double click and drag to select some text for example, when I lift my finger from the trackpad (which should end the select procedure) and move the cursor elsewhere, text selection still happens. The only way around this is to not touch the trackpad for about a second before I can move the mouse cursor elsewhere. Is there a way to get rid of this 1 second lag?

2) When I'm typing, and want to move the key cursor over my text, when holding down the arrow keys, the cursor still moves over text very slowly. Is there a way to speed this up?

Is is possible to hide the mouse cursor at will, so that it is invisible?

MacBook Pro :: Mouse Cursor Drop Shadow?

Apr 18, 2010

I have funny problem, well more of an annoyance than a problem. On my MBP, after maybe a day or two without rebooting (ie. just closing the lid), the mouse cursor drop shadow disappears and the cursor gets jaggy/aliased edges (imagine the cursor from Windows XP, but black). A reboot will bring it back.

The MacBook Pro is a stock late 2009 17" - 2.8Ghz, 4GB etc. with Mac OS X 10.6.3 (this annoyance has happened since 10.6.1). I have the graphics mode set to performance as 90% of the time I use the machine, I'm plugged in.

I've tried to see if there's a pattern to it, but it's seemingly random. Sometimes it's the same day as a reboot, sometimes I go a whole week without rebooting and still have the proper cursor. It's pretty weird. I originally thought it may have related to opening the lid while on battery power, however it's happened a couple of times when I've opened the lid while plugged.

Edit: Another interesting point.... if I plug an external display in, the cursor gets back its shadow, but then when I unplug the screen, it will return to the jaggy look (until a reboot).
