Ever since I updated my early 2010 MacBook Pro 13" with the 10.6.3 update, the mouse pointer freezes for 5 to 10 seconds, every now and then. The keyboard is next to unresponsive when this happens.

Are there more people having the same problem? Is this a known bug?

Is there a solution?

There is a 10.6.3 v1.1 update available . However, the documentation doesn't say anything about mouse problems. It may not solve your problem, but can't hurt? – Steve Folly Apr 13 '10 at 20:08
@Steve Folly - That's the update that caused the mouse freezing in the first pace I'm afraid. – Kriem Apr 13 '10 at 20:13

You are not alone in this one, I'm afraid. There's a 10 page long topic over on and lots of people (including me) have reported the same thing...

No resolution yet.
