I'm looking for a way to hide the mouse pointer after specified time of inactivity.  The only thing we've been able to find on the Internet is Cursor Hider, which is $15.  Does anyone know of a free program out there or a registry hack I can try for Windows XP?

Greetings, resourcepc !

The free utilities hide the cursor when you type, not when it is idle.  Cursor Hider is the only program I know that will hide the cursor when idle.

You can use write your own software to this function:
