Yesterday I was able to upgrade from 08.04LTS to 10.04LTS successfully.

Since then I have been trying to get an interesting USB Mouse problem resolved. 
However, after doing some research and poking around with Google it appears that 
a number of users have reported the same or sim1lar problem and there are a 
number of bug reports on Bugzilla. There are some fixes posted as well, however, 
there are reports of them not fixing the problem, as well.

I have tried 2 different wireless mice and a wired USB mouse, while all worked 
under 08.04 they now fail under 10.04. What is happening is the mouse stops 
working and the display is completely locked up even a ctrl+alt+Fx key sequence 
will not work; so I can't try restarting X from a console window. The only thing 
I have found to work is to reboot the system with a HARD shutdown and POWER UP.

Has anyone found a working solution? I have tried a couple but they did not fix 
the problem. The system is a Dell Latitude C610 Laptop, if that is any help.

I am going to try a PS2 mouse; if I can find one ...
