Windows 10: Device manager refresh causing mouse lag Solved

    Device manager refresh causing mouse lag


    I am all of the sudden getting mouse lag (mouse freezes up for 5-10 seconds every 30-60 second) due to my device manager constantly refreshing, or at least that's what I think it's from. I pulled up the device manager and the task manger to find what is happening. The sequence is: mouse freezes and device manager refreshes, then I notice Microsoft Management Console appears at the top of my Task Manager. So it seems the Microsoft Management Console is doing something to cause the Device Manager to refresh and then cause the Bluetooth mouse to freeze up. I'm not tech savvy, so I know I don't understand how all this works. I just need some help fixing it. Thanks ahead of time!

    It is possible that you have a poor mouse connection (either the Bluetooth or some wireless interference causing it )and your mouse is disconnecting and then reconnecting, each time it does this the device manager kicks in thinking there is a new piece of hardware being attached.

    Check the mouse battery strength, any Bluetooth dongle connections, etc. to see if there may be anything causing the problem.

    Okay, this was the problem philc43! I turned off the mouse and viola, no more issues. I recharged the batteries (Eneloop rechargeable), inserted into the mouse (ThinkPad bluetooth laser mouse with no dongle) and now the problem is back. So I know the mouse connection is the issue, but what now?
