I am having to restart mini mac and unplugging/plugging in the usb mouse to activate the mouse.  Any support/answers to activate the mouse?

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    Reset PRAM.

    Shut it down completely.


    Holding the Cmd+Opt+P+R keys, press the power button.

    Listen for the "startup chime" to sound three times and release the keys.

    Hi CF McBlob:


    Unfortunately, I do not have the Apple keyboard to follow your suggestion to reset PRAM. 

    I have a Dell keyboard with numerical keypad on it.  What keys on non-apple keypad should I hold/press?


    Thanks again!

    Instead of Command, use the Start button, as the Command key on Windows keyboards is just a different-looking Command key.

    Instead of Option, use Alt.
