I've turned off hot corners under the screen effects control panel. Any ideas on how to stop this maddening occurence?Greg Comments Reply 1 of 1 ghost_user_name Posts: 22,667member October 1, 2003 12:42AM Using an optical mouse?On what surface?If you use it on anything glass or reflective or glossy, it can distory the light and make it skip. Alternatively, if you use it on some surface like wood that had scratches in it, the scratches will make the mouse skip.My solution? I tape a blank sheet of typing paper on my desk. It works beautifully in lieu of a mouse pad. Sign In or Register to comment.
