Workarounds for a really sensitive mouse

I have a laser mouse, which is wonderful, except that it's extremely sensitive when I sometimes don't want it to be.  There are two things I'd like to workaround:

- When my screen goes off, if the mouse get's moved even a tiny bit, the screen will come back on.  Sometimes simply walking by my desk will be enough.  Is there a way to disable mouse moving from bringing the screen back on entirely?  I can just click the mouse or use the keyboard.

- Sometimes when I click, it thinks I'm trying to click-drag because I move the cursor a few pixels.  Is there a way to increase that threshold, to say, 5 pixels, so that if I click drag for 5 pixels or less it will still just detect a click?

Thanks!

Re: Workarounds for a really sensitive mouse

There is a slider in Gnome changing drag-and-drop threshold. You can slow down mouse with the following string in HAL's file:

<merge key="input.x11_options.ConstantDeceleration" type="string">10</merge>


we are not condemned to write ugly code

Re: Workarounds for a really sensitive mouse

Thanks, that fixes the drag threshold.  Isn't there an event somewhere that allows the mouse to turn the screen back on?  If I knew where it was, I could just comment it out or something.
