Having the same problem, using a Mac Powerbook OS X 10.6.8. I do not play in windowed mode ever. Very hard to exit the game when this occurs and often losing progress in Inferno mode is so painful :( Since everything one shots you going back really stinks.

I can confirm this issue as well on my Mac, both in D3, and in WoW. It happens in WoW quite often, and I have to relaunch the game to fix it. I am very disheartened to see this bug pop up in D3. It has happened in D3 six times since launch day.

I am losing my faith in Blizzard.

I suffer from the disappearing cursor issue as well... You can make it reappear by opening your inventory and selecting an item. This works for me, not sure if it will be the same for others...

[Running in Windowed Fullscreen - Windows 7]

I'm playing on a new 8 GB Mac Powerbook (running OS 10.7.4 Lion), using a wireless Targus mouse (Model #: AMW5701USZ), and have been playing Diablo 3 since release. D3 has been running fine until this cursor issue which has started to become a bigger problem.

Main issue; I can't get it to pop back up when playing full-screen. It seems to happen with inventory item; dragging or picking up, over burdened, etc. Mouse works for clicking to a location, but is not parsing visually. It's incredibly frustrating.

The vanishing cursor phenomenon is happening so frequently, that I'm starting to not even bother to play anymore. Being that I got the Collector's Edition box set, it's really turning into a disappointment. Please fix this in an upcoming update. I'm starting to feel totally screwed over between the crashes and mouse issues.

this happens on my 2011 mbp running lion everytime i use my "rat 7" mouse. I have never had this issue with my logitech g5. Just for fun I just tried my rat 7 again and the issue still persists.
Try a different mouse.

This worked to fix the issue for me. Thanks Ronin!

Same thing has been happening after update. Using 2011 late MBP, I have to pause the game and alt-tab out and back in to see the cursor again.

This has now started happening to me after the update, not before the update. If anything the update has only made things worse. For me, anyway.

Exact same problem, on my 2010 macbook pro 13", but I think the issue only occurred when there was an occasional bit of lag (normally rubber-banding). Happened twice in the same dungeon (easter passage, in the waterway in the dalghur oasis), and the only fix is restarting the game. Playing in fullscreen btw.

EDIT: Mac OSX 10.6.8

Clicking on an inventory item seems to fix this issue for me

Happens to me at least once every 2 hours, I end up having to command-tab out and back into the game 2-3 times before it works again. Well the cursor in gone it's impossible to click anything

I am running Mac OSX lion. The mouse keeps disappearing on me while I am fighting Belial. Is there a patch for this, or is there a graphics settings that I can turn down to prevent this from happening?
