Unplug a mouse and loose it

Sometimes in the middle of a KDE login,
 I plug Screen, keyboard and mouse into a different computer
 and use/debug that one for a while.

Then I want to go back to the original one.

The monitor and keyboard put up with this,
 plug them back in and start typing.

The mouse does not, when I return the mouse is non-existant.
True for both PS/2 connected mice and USB.

Finally I ran sax2 and the cursor returned when I canceled out.

Anyone know a better way of reviving mice
 or how to make them un-dying in the first place?
