If the laptop boots up for the first time my Xenta wireless mouse works great.

After sleep / resume, it will continue to work for maybe a few minutes before stopping completely.


Bus 001 Device 011: ID 1d57:001d Xenta


xinput --list 


⎡ Virtual core pointer                      id=2    [master pointer  (3)]
⎜   ↳ HID compliant-mouse HID compliant-mouse   id=12   [slave  pointer  (2)]

any time the mouse is plugged in, whether it's frozen or not.

I can fix it (very) temporarily by unplugging the usb receiver and plugging back in. After about one minute, it freezes again. It's only really fixed by restarting.

This mouse works on this laptop fine in my OS X and Windows partitions, including after sleep / resume. Any help would be much appreciated - I use Ubuntu on this Macbook way more than I use OS X or Windows and really would like this mouse to work fine with it as well.
