I am clearly not the only one dealing with this... After upgrading to 10.10 my keyboard and mouse don't work at the login screen. However, if i plug in another mouse to a random USB port, they somehow come to life and everything works as a charm.

Does anyone know what causes this to happen? Any feedback is highly appreciated.

what brand and model are your keyboard and mouse? and what brand and model is the mouse you plugged in that did work? (also are you on a laptop or PC?) – HTDutchy Oct 13 '11 at 21:46
