Mouse going to "sleep"

A1200, TF1230, keelog PSU, Indi Mk3, Gotech and a USB Mouse Adapter

All the upgrades to the A1200 are pretty recent. Never had trouble with the USB mouse adapter before but its been recently not working. If I disconnect and reconnect it the mouse works again. If I leave the A1200 for any length of time, it stops working again. My old amiga mouse doesnt have any issues whatsoever - except its a bit shit.

I am wondering if my upgrades have pushed my 5v low and the mouse is a victim? or is that a stupid idea?

Hi Lama

The same Mouse worked before the Upgrades ? (dont know youre PSU)
A optical Mouse ? Maybe the Psu is to weak now ?

About that "sleep" thing. That sounds familiar to me.
You see, i have a new optical Mouse that does exact the same thing. It goes into a "rest" more after some time.
Same happends when i use this mouse on Linux & Co.

This "Feature" is inside the Mouse so to Speak.
On Amiga, i had to press the Right Mouse Button to wake the mouse up again ; while on Linux & Co a simple Mouse Movement was enough. Thats maybe down to the adapter we are using on the Amiga, i dont know.

You could use another adapter of course, OR just use a different Mouse

All the best, Torti

I swapped out the USB adapter for a PS2 and the problem went away - not sure what the problem was in the end though.

If the adapter is this one https://amigastore.eu/741-usb-mouse-adapter.html then it needs external power to work reliably.
