Mouse will randomly stop working, When I pull up a terminal and cat the input i get nothing.
Not sure what is causing it. Can i restart a service to get it back without restarting the entire comp? or Xdm?

Seems to happen alot while playing java games. looking into lwjgl issues....

When the mouse has stopped working can you check for 'usb disconnect' message from 'dmesg'.

a shot in the dark:

either usb autosuspend related, bluetooth (logitech) mouse, logitech wireless mouse,

CFS/cpu scheduler related issue under heavy load - so BFS kernel scheduler might help and/or CFS/cpu scheduler tweaking
