I agree with Jikag, sounds like there is a bad connection somewhere, especially if you are hearing the USB connect/disconnect sound.
Since I like to tinker with things I would open it up and see if you can't fix it yourself with some electrical tape or something.
Suppose I want to read in the driver data (Mouse position) and write a program that would translate that into some form of usable information (i.e, read in stream of coordinate, if the stream is stopped, the laser isn't reading anything) but not let the driver actually move the mouse so I still have control over my mouse.
Obviously, B is my preferable approach as it seems easiest but I could be wrong. id=1218323850772&sku Id=2380794 Operating System: Windows 8 64-bit Resources, suggestions, pointers accepted.
If the problem occurs too soon after, the laser just shuts off until I unplug/plug. Please don't leave answers stating that you have the same problem as the one described in the question.

I had the same problem with my G9x Logitech mouse; lift it up, stops working for about a second or two. My last resort was to blow into the laser hole in the bottom of the mouse, and it seemed to have worked. If I play with the wire while moving the mouse around, I don't get the problem, although if I use the mouse on the arm of my chair, it seems to freeze up for a few seconds.
Looks like it was just some dirt/dust particles on my mouse. I have to lift it up before it starts working again.
If not then go in tools and select the option Computer Management and hit launch. I'd first check to see if it works with your Vista laptop, and if it doesn't it's a hardware issue. Try repairing permissions (in Applications- Guys Please dont comment in your personal think and thoughts with out read and understand question asked here!!!! IAm also facing the same issue, If any one know about it say the possible causes (Dont ask Mouse is connected and working in Windows) and the ways to fix the problem in MAC OSX Support will be highly appriciated Actually try downloading a developer tool called USB Prober and check to see if the mouse is actually being detected on that usb port.I still need to disable the mouse from moving on the screen somehow though. The red light on my mouse is on so it has power but I can't see anywhere where I can set it up, all I'm thinking is that I need a Mac specific mouse?My USB HID-compliant mouse (the dynex one), simply stops working when I lift it up and put it down back on the table.After I return it to the table, it takes like 1-3 seconds to back working.
