I have Mac OS Lion, version 10.7, and after my screensaver activates, sometimes I can no longer click anything successfully.
I'm using a Magic Mouse with almost full battery.
These things still work:
- Moving the mouse cursor
- Right-clicking things
However, when I move the mouse cursor over something that's clickable in the browser, I don't see the hand cursor. Also when I mouse over the right-click context menu, the rows don't highlight in blue.
I can't click in to any window, menu bar, or desktop item. Switching to another virtual desktop doesn't help. When I did move to another virtual desktop, I noticed that there was a bandbox selected on the desktop that was still attached to my mouse movements, but when I right-clicked it went away and the mouse still doesn't work as described above.
The only solution right now is to logout. I haven't installed any drivers on this machine, it's a brand-new Mac Mini that came with Lion on it.
I'm running these programs: * MacVim * Adium * Google Chrome * iTunes * iTerm latest version
These are the same applications I run on my MacBook Air with Lion installed, and I never get the same problem even with a Magic Mouse connected.
Does anyone know how to fix this?
I also have a Magic Trackpad connected, and it continues to work fine. Clicking with it doesn't un-jam the mouse, though.
