    Mouse pointer disappears on wake from sleep


    Recently my mouse pointer has been disappearing when the system wakes in Windows 10 Pro. I can still see it highlighting when moving the mouse and the dialog open with a right click. It only comes back if I open the Task Manager or a separate window. Strangely if I manually put the computer to sleep through the power menu this issue does not seem to appear, it only shows when the computer sleeps after the allotted time.

    Not sure if this is an issue with Nvidia Drivers or a Windows Update.

    Any ideas on what might cause this or how to fix it?

    :)

    mouse unusable after wake from sleep

    when waking a windows 10 machine from sleep, my Microsoft intellimouse explorer 3.0 pointer is unusable. for every second I move the mouse in any direction, the pointer moves for about 1/3 second then stops.

    the led on the mouse appears to be off when I wake the machine from sleep using the keyboard.

    the solution so far has been to unplug and plug in the mouse (waiting about 2-3 seconds before plugging in, otherwise problems sometimes continue).

    after unplug/plug it works fine until the next time the machine goes to sleep.

    I already did install the latest Microsoft intellimouse software/driver and that did not help.

    the "allow this device to wake from sleep" is checked, though it appears the device goes to sleep too (?). I have also already attempted to change the power settings for usb devices. this did not help.

    does anybody have any other suggestions to make the mouse work on wake up instead of having to unplug/plug each time?

    Windows 10 mouse pointer dissappears

    I created another user account and then had to wait until the mouse pointer had disappeared after a start up from sleep.

    When this happened I logged into the new account and after it set up the mouse pointer had reappeared. Then switching back to my usual account the mouse pointer was/is still there. Does this give any clues how to fix the problem?

    Mouse pointer disappears on wake from sleep

    Same thing happening with my PC, especially lately. It previously would happen only once or twice in a month; it's happened now several times in the past day.
