USB Mouse stop working on redhat 4.6 WS

F the 2nd time in 2 days my mouse stops responding on my linux workstation.
I cant control the location on the screen to pop up so I cannot even use my keyboard to try to recover.
Yesterday when it happened I finally restarted my machine via   ps ssh, and when it restarted the mouse
responded normally.
now, it has happened again!  I need some help diagnosing this.
I have reseated the usb connection, swapped ports, changed mice, no response.  I dont know if the linux machines are hot swappable for usb ports or not.

I cannot continue rebooting my machine when this happens!
Is there some port diagnostic I can run

Linux Distributions

A Linux distribution is an operating system made as a software collection based on the Linux kernel and, often, on a package management system and are available for a variety of systems. A typical Linux distribution comprises a Linux kernel, GNU tools and libraries, additional software, documentation, a window system (the most common being the X Window System), a window manager, and a desktop environment. Most Linux systems are open-source software made available both as compiled binaries and in source code form, allowing modifications to the original software. Over three hundred distributions are in active development, including commercially backed distributions (such as Fedora, openSUSE and Ubuntu) and community-driven distributions (such as Debian, Slackware, Gentoo and Arch Linux).
