    and remember to make sure you completely unplug your PC to "re-seat the power source"

    What spec is your PC/LT?
    What size RAM?
    What OS and patch level?
    How long do you leave the PC on before it happens?
    Do you get the same problem when NOT connected to the network/Internet?

    That's a "workaround", not a "fix".

    Sorry, it's not your fault.

    Any ideas how I can resolve it?

    Do a virus and spyware scan first. Eliminate the obvious. Reinstall the mouse drivers. If you are using a PS/2 mouse, think about using a USB one. If you are using a USB mouse, check to see if you can see it in Device Manager. If you can't, it could mean there is a problem with either the USB port or the mouse itself.
