This is simple to explain: When I either a.) Mouse over something that fires an event when the mouse is over it (a.k.a. categories (Internet, Graphics) in the "Start" menu) or b.) I click on something, the cursor disappears. Sometimes it reappears on it's own, but it always comes back when I move my mouse the slightest bit. This annoys me. It usually happens when there is high resource-demanding applications running (a.k.a Chromium) but it sometimes happens when I first fire up the Pi. It is very inconstant, so I cannot describe it more. I have attached another mouse and it does the same thing. Is this my Pi's fault or the OS or the mouse? I cannot find any help online.

Is this a bug or a feature? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Have you run sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade in a terminal yet? Probably not going to solve your problem, but you never know. – Vincent P Feb 6 '13 at 6:25
@VincentP It didn't work. :( Sorry, I just got your post. – Anonymous Penguin Feb 9 '13 at 20:20
Well if your running the most up to date (stable) version of Raspbian and it your cursor is still disappearing. I'd suggest re-install, even though I really hate it when people just say re-install. I dont really see any other plan of action. Sorry. – Vincent P Feb 12 '13 at 9:21
