Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Please keep the number of questions in your post to one. This is how the site works. Also, what do you mean by your mouse disappearing? It hides behind your monitor being scared of you? Or do you mean the mouse pointer on your screen not visible? Please be more specific about your issue and consider posting them as single ones (edit this one). –  gertvdijk Jan 17 '13 at 11:13
@gertvdijk: The mouse cursor gets hidden once the movement stops. –  user123928 Jan 17 '13 at 11:27
