I sat down at my desk after dinner.
Switched on my computer to do some work.
Lo and behold, my mouse couldn’t be detected – the cursor just froze in the corner of my screen.
Don’t worry because here’s a simple solution, and it worked for me!
Step 1: Go to Start >> Device Manager
Step 2: Click on the little white arrow in front of “Universal Serial Bus Controllers”
Step 3: Right click on “USB Root Hub”, and click Properties
Step 4: Click on the Power Management tab
Step 5: Uncheck the box for “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”
Step 6: Click Ok.
Step 7: Do the same for all other “USB Root Hubs” you have in your Device Manager.
Step 8: Restart your computer.
Then voila! Your mouse will be working again!
