Mouse cursor gets stuck in left upper corner
Open, Needs More InfoPublic


When I'm not at my desk I close the laptop lid and reopen it when I return to my desk. It happened to me several times after opening the laptop lid and entering my password that the mouse cursor gets stuck in the left upper corner and can only be moved with extreme force if at all. The only solution for me has been to restart the computer. This is problematic if I have some documents open which I cannot save.

What kind of mouse is it and did you try replugin?

It's a trackpoint, not a mouse. I just realized that this also sometimes happens before login.

inxi gives this output:
