  • When I lived in the barracks, my mouse pointer would freeze *if* I was moving the mouse at the moment the air conditioning kicked in or turned off. However, if the mouse pointer was motionless it didn't affect it. And yes, I had a surge protector. It took me a while to figure this out.

    The only thing I can think of that would be causing your problem is some sort of static discharge caused by sitting in your lap. Perhaps some "Bounce" with your laundry is in order. :)

    • Sorry, I didn't mention that the lap thing is most likely related to the fact that the TiBook has a lot of "flex" in it. It is clearly a flaw in my particular computer (whether the keyboard or something else), and not a flaw in the model itself (except that the decision to use Titanium is specious, in light (ha!) of all the problems with it), but the point is that when in my lap (or on my CoolPad [coolpad.com]), the body is allowed to flex, which contributes to the problem somehow. At least, that seems the most logical explanation. I hope it is a keyboard problem, and not something else, though, because if it is something else, I might not get the computer repaired in time for YAPC.

      Either way, I get to keep the extra keyboard, w00p!
