Windows 7: Cursor goes dead

Cursor goes dead

If I leave my laptop running and leave the room - at least half an hour - when I come back, I can move the cursor across the screen, but it doesn't activate anything when I try to click on it. I have to force a restart to gain control of the screen again. Any suggestions?

Is it wireless?

If it does not work in safe mode, go to device manager and make sure that you have the most up to date driver. Check at company website

If it does work. Test with a clean boot.
