Where are you calling this line? In a script or the event of a control?

You are going to have to give a little more context as to what is happening. Also any elements like text boxes or links and other elements that have custom hover styles over them will still change them to their respective style.

And you're sure that the code is being executed, put an alert("Test"); before the line is called, and see if it appears, you may have other js errors stopping it from executing

try putting a little delay:
setTimeout("document.body.style.cursor = 'wait'", 10);
see if that helps

sorry for the delay.
Honestly...i dont know, maybe its because it is giving the command a chance to execute before it performs anything else. The reason i suggested it is because it has helped me for similar things in the past
Glad i could help
