    I have this really annoying problem with my laptop which occurs when I
    leave it idle for too long. Basically, the mouse cursor freezes on
    screen and stays where it is, the mouse is still functional but I can't
    see where it points. It's like an invisible cursor.

    I have a Sony Vaio but seeing how the mouse and the touchpad are still
    functional, I think it's a software issue... There's some guy on
    experts exchange that got an answer but it costs like $10 to see it..

    $10/hour. Well, you should know.

    But for $10 he gets to read the answer...and has no assurance it's the right

    Anyway I once had the identical mouse problem...and after a lot of
    frustration and searching...
    it turned out to be a problem with the video drivers of all things

    Roll back your video driver if you updated it prior to the cursor problem.

    And as far as the $10 answer goes, it could be the wrong answer as well as
    the right answer.
