initialize USB mouse after plugging out

Hi,
is it possible to initialize the USB mouse again, if someone plugged it out by mistake ?
If you plug in the mouse again, it doesn´t work anymore (hangs). Sometimes they have to save some files, but the programs can´t be used without mouse.

Kind regards
Walter

Re: initialize USB mouse after plugging out

What OS?? Seems that you are in wrong forum.

If windows, can you do system refresh and that should take care of it.

Re: initialize USB mouse after plugging out

You can always get people to use Windows and Exceed if they're going to be idiots and start pulling hardware. Much as I like HPUX, most Unixes suck when it comes to getting hardware, networking etc. messed with while they're online.

You may also be able to modunload/modload the USB driver from the command line. (modload=hpux? can't remember, but you get the idea)
A sysadmin should never cross his fingers in the hope commands will work. Makes for a lot of mistakes while typing.

Re: initialize USB mouse after plugging out

Most USB components can be HOT SWAPPED which is removed then reinserted. I have a USB mouse and keyboard and I can remove them, use them on another computer, the put them back on the original without missing a beat. Also, some of the devices that had problems in USB 1.1 were fixed in USB 2.0.
Hot swapping and USB go hand in hand.
