I'm using Ubuntu 13.04 and my Logitech M510 wireless mouse stop working for few sec after not moving it for few sec. I changed the batteries for new one but the issue is still present. I'm using it on my laptop since playing Minecraft with a touch pad is not recommended.

If I keep moving the mouse around, it will work, but it is only when I stop touching it for like 3 seconds that it freeze for 1 or 2 seconds, even more sometime.

What can I do to solve this issue?

Your mouse is most likely auto sleeping after a given delay.

Logitech says that the M510 should have a 15-30 second delay before sleeping, so I don't think it's the mouse's problem alone.

It's possible that you're experiencing general autosuspend for USB devices.
