    I have a 2007 Macbook Pro with the same problem. I am running Mac OS 10.7.4.


    I find that when I use the colour picker the curso disappears. If I use cmd+Tab, then I can get it back.


    This has only happened since I recently upgraded the OS.

    Sending 'feedback' is not the proper way to notify Apple about this issue, nor is posting on the forum (unless you expectation is just to see if you can find others with a workaround or to just find others with the problem ).


    The proper route is to file a bug report. You can use an Apple ID to submit these



    I suspect that specific apps that temporarily change the cursor (for example Word often changes the cursor to a brace, as does almost any text field in a browser), causes the cursor to disappear. Changing the cursor size seems to exacerbate this problem but isn't required to cause it.


    I would encourage anyone experiencing the problem to file a bug report. If you are contacted by Apple for more infomration, make an effort to provide them with what they need. All to often someone will submit a bug but never follow through with any required info  to help resolve it.

    Bugreporter is available only to registered Apple Developers.

  • DJ.Rumpy Level 1 Level 1

    You do realize anyone can register? You don't have to be a developer.

    I found out that restarting the program solves the issue for me. I was on Opera when my cursor started to disappear repeatedly. Then I restarted Opera, and problem solved. I'm running 10.8.1 Mountain Lioin on MBP 8,2.

    I very much regret that passed to Mountain Lion as on Lion of such problem never was. I very often work in Photoshop and with transition on 10.8 work became awful as the cursor vanishes about an every minute and it is necessary to click the Photoshop that the cursor appeared on an icon. It is so impossible to work, it is very sad that the Apple can't quickly solve this problem! I very much regret that put 10.8 at once on all computers. Now I think as to reinstall back Lion

    Typically you can just move your mouse to the edge of your screen and click to make it visible again as long as you can click away from the front app window. Not as easy if you keep your window maximized or at full screen but you can always minimize the window via keyboard shortcut in those instances.

    Hi Everyone, dont want to get everyones hopes up just yet, but since I've upgraded to 10.8.2 this problem seems to have now been fixed, its still early days for me so I'll report back if my cursor disappears again, but so far I'm 2 days in and my mouse cursor is still present and I'm swiping between screens and using Mission Control etc and so far no problem, has anyone else found this ?

  • brianric Level 1 Level 1

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but I think 10.8.2 solved my disappearing problem. I've resized my pointer back to where I had it before ML, and in four days I haven't had one instance of a disappearing cursor.

  • brianric Level 1 Level 1

    Meant to say last two days, not four.

  • DJ.Rumpy Level 1 Level 1

    Still seeing it on 10.8.2.

  • brianric Level 1 Level 1

    Short lived. Problem of disappearing cursor is showing up in 10.8.2. Resized cursor size back to normal.

  • fredricwilliams Level 1 Level 1

    If the update fails to solve the problem, as appears to be the case, then when combined with the elimination of the Google maps application from iPhone, this would seem to be an excellent time to sell short Apple stock. I thought the absence of Steve Jobs might mean the deterioration of the company, but I'm surprised to see it happening so rapidly.

  • DJ.Rumpy Level 1 Level 1

    Yes, because a bug in the OS immediately brings to mind doom and gloom....*rolls eyes*

  • seegoer Level 1 Level 1

    Few products, including Apple's, get it right the first time. Even the iphone – among many had problems. I've bought hundreds of devices going back to the first Macs, but learned long ago not to be an early-adopter of a new OS. My motto was always wait a bit until the first bugs are worked out. Unfortunately, I rarely follow my own advice.
