    Lately, Ive been getting this weird thing in the mouse where the cursor disappears and the mouse turns off and then comes back on.

    Could it be that the mouse is messed up already?

    Try a different usb port and see if it still happens.

    Time to get a new mouse. You might have a loose wire somewhere in the length of the cord. Or try the mouse in a different computer to see if you get the same results.

    i think it could be that because the past 2 weeks i been getting frustrated playing BF2142 and I was slamming the mouse against the desk.

    That would definately be bad for the mouse. Somewhat of an expensive lesson learned.
