Well I have all the standard office mac stuff installed on this thing that runs fine on a wide variety of macs on my office (all up to date). When the user puts his powerbook to sleep and then wakes it up... no more mouse. Please help if you can.

Just a few pieces of information I need, as there is a few instances of this problem.
1. Does the 1400cs have a G3 upgrade card?
2. What version of MacOS is it running?
3. Can you still use the keyboard even when the mouse is not appearing?

In case you have a VST Technologies' expansion bay Zip drive:

Update the driver for VST Technologies' expansion bay Zip drive.
You can download the software from VST's web site.

If not then it is a bug in the system software. Work around: Do not let your powerbook go to sleep
