I'm listening... but I guess I am damned too... though it seems to a
lesser extent.

For the record I am on a brand new Asus M2N32-SLI Deluxe WIFI
motherboard (nForce 590 chipset), and am experiencing this problem. I am
using a MSFT Intellimouse Explorer 4.0 mouse (wired) on USB.  For me,
the problem occurs when i leave the mouse alone for an extended amount
of time (greater than 5 minutes).  If I am even only casually using the
mouse (at least once every couple of minutes, such as reading blogs or
articles), there are no problems. I have not yet experienced a
mouse/pointer lockup while using it. Also, using a USB-to-PS/2 converter
does not alleviate the problem at all.

At this time I'm a bit too new to Linux to start compiling new kernels
(too afraid), as I'm having enough of a problem getting [*certain*]
video and audio codecs to install.  When I get the chance, though, I
will try to replicate the problem on some different distributions (at
the moment I have Knoppix and CentOS laying around), taking note of
kernel version (uname -r, right?)
