Had an old Micro Soft USB mouse that would simply
cease working after an indeterminate amount of time
(15 seconds to 40 minutes).  Unplugging & re-plugging
made it come back.  Eventually I mashed it with a
hammer, which made me feel immensely better.

Also recently bought a wireless USB mouse that
worked exactly once.

I don't know about anyone else's experience, but USB
mouses seem to be pretty hit&miss.  I blame george w.
