I am trying to eliminate a random (and quite frustrating) behavior. At seemingly random intervals my mouse (a corded Razor Mamba) doesn't respond. I have stripped out just about every imaginable background task and replaced every wireless device with a corded device. I have also had the Task Manager Performance tab open to see if there was some associated spike in something (RAM, CPU, or I/O), but all remain relatively flat.

The computer is very capable (i7 Skylake X, 32 GB of RAM and a Samsung SSD 950 PRO NVMe drive
Any ideas where I can turn to next?
