    I am using mountain lion ob my 27"Mac. Have the same problem. Read somewhere that if the cursor disappears tap Command Tab and it will return.

    This helped. But it is still an nuisance issue, hope apple can find a solution.

    Same problem to me, going active corners, Mission Control or Expose turns it visible.

    So I know this is a lion discussion but I too am having this problem with Mountain Lion. Gaoxiong mentioned Command Tab to get the cursor to reappear but I agree that this is not a solution. I've mentioned this on another discussion and would encourage anyone having this problem to chime in on the Mountain Lion discussion here: https://discussions.apple.com/message/19203354#19203354

    Hardly a selling point for a new OS.

    Things should be better, for MAcs, this is a basic function we are talking about

    I agree with Sean Wolter the same (using "show colors", etc.) happens when using Numbers under OSX Mountain Lion. Solution: same as Sean suggests... hold down COMMAND-TAB.

     

    Apple have to look into this.  Macs are great, but for their price and level of standards this is just not acceptable.

    I have this same problem, have reported it to Apple, restart my machine now and then(not gonna do it every time the cursor disappears, as that is just assinine) and it still occurs quite sporadically.  The one thing that I found right off the bat, as opposed to pushing key combinations, is that when my cursor disappears, i just take my finger on the trackpad and move it around rather quickly back and forth and that always brings the cursor back. Not a great solution, but it works.  The only acceptable solution is for Apple to FIX THIS and that is the only solution.  I agree, when you pay $1000 or two for a laptop, things like this should NOT be an issue and should be resolved quickly and not have to have users droning on on a support forum about how this is still a problem and how it should get fixed...  Pretty sad.
