That seems very odd. I'd suspect the mouse itself, partly because it's so easy to just try another one.

I wonder if the touchpad or its driver is acting up. Can you disable the touchpad? I wonder if that would make any difference...

Trying to think what would cause mouse click to work after a period of time.

First thing I thought of was some software (like a click-macro utility) grabbing control of the mouse click, then letting go when done or timed out. Makes no sense.

Other thing I could think of was USB port power issue, which also doesn't make a lot of sense. If there is any other USB device attached, disable it. If you have an externally powered USB hub available to you, you could try that.
