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
