Windows 11 HDR Causes Mouse Lag

New Contributor

This is an ongoing issue I am having when HDR is enabled. When the PC goes to sleep (or while using some apps) the mouse becomes laggy and turns to a transparent gray upon awakening. Pressing ctrl-alt-del resolves this issue but only temporarily. There is a reddit thread here discussing this issue in more depth:

One user reported this fixed, but the issue reappeared a few days later.


Some feedback from Microsoft would be appreciated.

I am the user that talked about the issue being fixed. I have a gtx 1060 and am running latest nvidia drivers. But the issue has reappeared and still no fix.

Any chance you are also running EVGA precision x1 for GPU tuning? For some reason, it uses almost 20% CPU usage and when I force quit the app everything works again for a short while. Also when I am gaming my system performs flawlessly. It's been taking me a while to get to the bottom of this bug.

@JonahSchiavone I'm not but I do use an EVGA GTX 1060 for what its worth
