Sometimes when I start WoW after a few minutes the mouse dissapears. The
hand cursor stays in one place, but if I move my mouse I can still mouseover
buttons etc its just that its invisible. I quit out of the game and its
doing the same thing in Windows. I can select icons with the mouse but the
graphic of the cursor stays in one place, I just restart Windows and then
its ok.

I use this mod :

Have only recently noticed it and it doesnt do it all the time! Has anyone
else had something similar?
I've gone to video options and clicked use defaults, I may have changed some
over time. I noticed hardware cursor but I've been playing for months with
that option on and this has only started recently.

I've had that happen when my video card started to overheat.

I've been using the default settings and it hasn't done it yet.
WoW seems to be as graphically demanding as any game, my card gets fairly
hot but don't think it overheats. In the past when graphics cards or
something else overheated it would freeze the whole game.

Or when your CPU overheats the computer would reset. Video cards
probably would the same with but with less predictable results..

i think in interface options there is something like "activate hardware
cursor" or so... perhaps unckecking (or checking) of this option will
help ya?
