Many laptops will disable the internal mouse if they see that an
external one is present, and enable it if they don't.  Some only
perform this check when the computer boots.  You may have one of
these.  Check your BIOS to see if you have a setting to affect this
behavior.  You might have to live with both mice always being enabled.
