Mouse sleeps every ten seconds

My mouse goes to sleep after ten seconds of inactivity.

As long as I keep the mouse in motion, everything is fine, but if it stops moving for ten seconds or more, then when I move it again, there is a small delay before it starts working, as if it was asleep.

Quanum 63.0, windows 7, USB wired mouse, direct to USB Port, no hub. I have restored firefox, and unchecked 'allow computer to save power' in all mice drivers and USB drivers. What else is there to do?

Are there any problems in rendering pages? There was an issue caused by malware some time back where a page would stop loading if you didn't keep moving the mouse. To rule that out, you could try some of the cleaning tools listed in this article: Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware.

Also, try reloading the mouse software from its website.
