Since I upgraded to Mountain Lion, I have the following issue:

The mouse cursor is not visible after I resume my Mac from a sleep state.

This behaviour is not happening on every resume

A restart of the OS brings the cursor back

The trackpad works. I can blindly navigate on the screen but this does not make much sense as you only have a guess where the cursor might currently be...


I run Mountain Lion on a Mac Mini (Mid 2011)

Usually, the following applications are running (everything on the latest version):

  • Safari & Chrome
  • Mail
  • Twitter
  • VMWare Fusion
  • iTunes


I never experienced this issue when running OS X Lion with the same applications on the same Mac.


Has someone seen the same issue and maybe even an approach how to fix this annoying issue?

    Try resetting the PRAM.  My iMac suffered from slow startup after upgrading with a disappearing cursor and resetting the the PRAM solved my issue.
