We have a very peculiar situation.  After a while not using the Wireless Logitech Mouse, we have to move vigorously in order to start working again.  

What is causing this problem and can it be solved?

We have a Windows 7 Pro PC.

I'm assuming you are using native drivers that win7 supplied. Have you tried to install the manufacturer drivers?  Wired or wireless?  How old is the mouse?

It is using a dongle. go into device manager select the mouse and then in the power options configure it so that windows never puts that device into standby to save power.

Haven't tried installing the manufacturer drivers; i think when purchase no CD came with it since W7 compatible.  The current drivers in Device Manager are:

   - HID-Compliant Mouse (Microsoft, c:\Windows\System32\mouclass.sys
     and c:\Windows\System32\mouhid.sys found in Driver File Details)
   - Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad (this is happening in a notebook)

It's a wireless mouse.
It's a bit over 1.5 years old

As for Power Option, the only available option is "Allow this device to wake the computer"; and is checked.

What do you mean by "It is using a dongle."?

I've had one of those units before. I had the same problem and eventually bought something else.   These aren't exactly precision instruments.  If you updated the drivers, checked the batteries and physically inspected, not much more you can do.

Hello Ramante,

The last question asked, and your answer was a "What is a dongle?" A dongle looks a bit like a small as a USB flash drive are even smaller (a nub dongle), it's a Unifying USB receiver from the PC's USB Port, the receiver in in the mouse. There will be a reset button on both.

There is also usually an On/Off button on the bottom of the mouse a sample of the Mouse and dongle is here: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/mice-pointers/mice/devices/6064

See if your device in on this page: http://www.logitech.com/en-us/mice-pointers/mice Click on this link choose the mouse if you see it, go to Troubleshoot, you can also find the newest downloads for the mouse.

Let me know it this helps.

I'm pretty sure it's a power setting as suggested by  ve3ofa  http:#a37819402
