Mouse stops responding for a few seconds

I got a Thermaltake Black mouse, pretty much this one except it's black

After plugin it in it works. All the buttons including the side one works.

But after some time, usually after letting the mouse idling for a moment, it stops responding to movement, even though all the buttons keep working.

I can't find anything about that specific mouse on google, right now i'm clueless about what to do, or if it is fixable at all.

any help is appreciated

dmesg

I think this might have something to do

"[11288.251822] usb usb4: root hub lost power or was reset"

Re: Mouse stops responding for a few seconds

I just wonder if you have used powertop or some other like software and set the USB ports to go into standby when not used. I remember a similar problem a few years ago. Might want to check to see if you set up anything like that??

i don't remember doing something like that, but i was just messing with usb autosuspend with the help of zorael

this is what was tried so far:

echo -1 | sudo tee /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-2/power/autosuspend  [which outputs -1]

for f in $(find /sys/devices/pci0000\:00 -name autosuspend); do echo -1 | sudo tee $f; done   [outputs -1 ten times]

but it still freezes

just put all usb ports to bad in powertop

Re: Mouse stops responding for a few seconds

This happened to me too.

In my case, it was a stringent default configuration in laptop-mode-tools that would power down all USB devices. I simply disabled it
