Wireless Mouse Not Working

Hi, so I have a Logitech G502 Lightspeed, a wireless gaming mouse. It worked absolutely fine on Arch up until a few weeks ago when it just stopped. Now it only works if plugged in directly using the cable (defeating the whole purpose of having a wireless mouse). I think this is an issue with Xorg not recognizing the USB receiver as an input source as the device is listed under lsusb, but not xinput. This is strange however as my mouse just kind of abruptly stopped working one day mid-use, no updates  or anything involved. The mosue works within my system's BIOS and boot menu, so I can somewhat reasonably that this is due to Xorg. All of my searching has found me nothing of similar issues, so this is sort of my last hope (besides Logitech support which so far has been utterly useless). I should mention the mouse works on Windows as well, so it is not a hardware issue.

output of lsusb:

 Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 046d:c539 Logitech, Inc. USB Receiver

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub 

output of xinput:

Any and all help is appreciated!

Re: Wireless Mouse Not Working

This will be rather on the kernel level (try eg. gpm) and "stopped working one day mid-use" sounds like it's power saving related.
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Po … utosuspend
Try to disable PM by setting "usbcore.autosuspend=-1" but be aware that runtime tools (tlp, laptop-mode-tools, powertop, your DEs PM setting…) can revert that any time.
