Is it possible that the mouse itself is partly involved with the 
problem?  Many wireless mice have an energy saving feature that powers 
down the mouse when long periods of inactivity are sensed by the mouse. 
  Maybe the time lag is related to the mouse powering up again and maybe 
the mouse driver loses communications with the mouse and "goes crazy". 
  It's just a theory but is such a period of inactivity involved?  If it 
is, maybe you can change some of the power saving features of the mouse.
