Not sure why this occurs but periodically when I am ONLY playing a game on my laptop the mouse cursor will occasionally shift around its current position in a small radius in random directions temporarily (2-5 seconds at a time) by itself and also will auto-click (left mouse button).
Most noticeable when I am playing Sniper Challenges in Hitman 2 because of the level of precision required. The sniper rifle will occasionally auto-fire. I’ve had numerous Hitman Silent Assassin runs ruined because I pick up a gun and it will immediately auto-fire. But this issue also occurs in less intensive games like say…Baldur’s Gate 1998, and Lord of the Rings Online (non-steam).
I’ve tried 3 difference mice so far and the issue persists, so I am thinking it is a setting or something software related in the background causing it? Windows 10…preliminary troubleshooting hasn’t revealed any quick fixes. (mostly just changing mouse settings)
