Mouse problem

I have a logitech optical mouse and every once in awhile for no reason the cursor will dart across the screen and then I have control of it again. Although its not a big concern its just somewhat annoying especially when I'm playing games. The question I have is this a normal thing with optical mouse's or is something causing it? I've already made sure there's nothing on the lens or the desk surface that might throw it off but I'm clueless on what it could be.

I have heard of this problem before with no real solution. However are you sure that you are not lifting the mouse? if you life it real quick and real slight it will jump off the screen like you are talking about. That may be what is happening to you.. may not be though

Yeah I'm not lifting it and theres no cell phone around since my charger is on the otherside of the room and my cordless is away from it. I guess I'll just live with it but its annoying when you playing a game and all of a sudden the cursor goes flying off.

My mouse will do the same thing. I have an optical mouse and the desk surface does not have a very good contrast for the mouse to pick up. I don't use a mouse pad, I should get one, but can't aford it.
