    I just got a Lenovo R400 and noticed that whenever the HDD light goes on, my mouse pointer stops, then when there's no activity, it moves again. This is driving me crazy as my other computer don't do that shit. What do I do or disable so that my mouse moves freely regardless of the HDD activity??

    I would call Lenovo tech support, see if they have any tips or known issues

    but do you have the "trails" option on the mouse?

    I tried that trails option, but it still happens.
