I want to know if it is >something in my Mac or a problem between Mathematica and QuicKeys. Why does it alternate between the clock and arrow? Were you running a script? Does this happen in other programs? I may have a similar problem, but I have not associated it with mma or qk. Here's my situation. About three times a day I'll notice that my cusor will move side to side or up and down about 5 times per second, and this lasts about one or two second, then one second rest, totaling of about 3 busts whenever it happens. Of course nothing is moving my mouse and I'm fairly sure my mouse or keyboard isn't defective. Apple told me it is POSSIBLE it is a CPU hardware problem, but they have not heard it before. I always have my QuickKey 2.1.3 installed. I had this problem on my PowerMac 7500/100 since I bought it in Jan.
