comment How do I solve periodic mouse lag on Linux Mint (MATE)?
All this is true, that's why I said "play" not "run" ;) While playing, you will be able to isolate the problem. For starters, using different desktop environment or none at all, may be interesting.

You may want to play with older versions of Linux Mint and/or Ubuntu.

Nothing interesting the the Xorg log. Which older version of Linux Mint you ran without troubles? What environment?

comment Starting Guest OS slows down computer
On the Host OS - open Task Manager, click the Processes Tab and sort them by memory consumption in descending order. Start the VM with 1 GB RAM as previously configured. Update your question with the screenshot from the Task Manager. Make sure all other applications are closed before that.

OK, so close all your applications, start the VM and post the result here. Does it make a difference? If not, reduce your VM memory to 512 MB and try again. Post the result here.

@Polppan - as per your first screenshot you have allocated 1GB for your VM. Now, how much memory you have on the Host OS?

comment In Linux Mint 14, running a script from Startup Applications doesn't work, but from terminal does
dpkg-reconfigure dash -> answer "No" to set as default. Verify /bin/sh points to Bash (ls -lh /bin/*sh). Verify you can run the script as executable: cd ~/bin/ && ./.wacomsetup.sh. Ideally, remove the ~ from the Startup Program Command.

First, please state what hardware you are using - desktop/laptop, mouse type and manufacturer. Have you tried different mouse? Is there swapping during the lag (can verify with top)? When to mouse lag occur, does it affect the keyboard too? Generally, more info you put in your question, better answer you can get.

Create RAID, unplug the cable from one of the drives and see what happens :)
