Windows 7: How to make the mouse pointer hide after X seconds?

How to make the mouse pointer hide after X seconds?

I would like for the mouse pointer/cursor to hide after a few seconds of inactivity. Is there a way to do this natively?

I tried this software and it does do this, but it is also buggy and sometimes the cursor never comes back from hiding.

Any ideas of something better?

Hello Bamma, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I do not know about that, but you can set the pointer to hide while typing fromt Mouse Properties in the Control Panel.

Actually I saw that before, but that has no impact on what I am looking for.
