There have been times when on ATS that my mouse would suddenly get a "mind of it's own" and move around by itself. Not intelligently, but just slide from one side of the screen to the other, or move up and down. This happens about once a day, and it is freaking me out.

Can't say that has ever happened to me.

Not sure if it matters but I use one of those laser mouses. Makes gaming better.

Yeah, LT, I don't know what my mouse's deal is, but it is pissing me off! It is kind of weird though, when it moves on it's own. Maybe someone is remote linking into my computer?

Um, that's your employer on PCAnywhere or some other network snoop viewer accidentally bumping their mouse while watching you goof off on ATS.


Maybe, maybe not. Actually that DID happen to me at one employer.

Little trick: Very quickly try going to SHUT DOWN all of a sudden and if you have a remote viewer shadow it will say This action will disconnect the remote viewer!

That was my experience anyway.

I only had that happen once - the mouse was full of crap inside and when I opened it up, the rollers were clogged. Since I cleaned it, it has never done that again. And no, it wasn't on a work computer, it was the one at home and I didn't have the net at the time.

Does it only happen on ATS? I have had some problem with a broken mouse that would 'lock up' and send the same signal for some time. Maybe that can explain it.

That happens to me sometimes, but it's the wire thats kind of pulling the mouse to a position it 'wants' it to be in.

A fcouple of questions...


Are you using a laptop with a builtin pad mouse?
(sometimes, I accidentily move my are across the pad when im typing and it moves the cursor)


Are you using a balled mouse that hasn't been cleaned in a while?
(The dirt inisde your mouse may be screwing up you mouse)

Amantine brings up a good point, does this happen just on ats?
