LazyMouse is the type of application that you either like or hate. Supposed to make you save time, it can automatically snap your cursor onto every new window you open.

The preference pane option can also bring your cursor back to its original position. Because it install in your System Preferences, LazyMouse is really easy to set up and activate.

You can have it play a sound every time the mouse is moved, although we discourage you doing that, as it gets a bit annoying after a while.

LazyMouse will appeal to users who hate moving their cursor around and like having it point right to where they need to click.

However, most users, accustomed to moving their cursor around, might get a bit discouraged by it. We really suggest trying LazyMouse out to see if you really need it or not.

Changes

  • Added a check to prevent the cursor from being moved if the display has been put to sleep. This will prevent the cursor from jumping to the default button of the login window, thus reawakening the screen in some situations
  • LazyMouse was forcing the new 2010 MacBook Pro to use its NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics card all the time. This should be fixed.
  • fixed snapping to the Replace button in the Finder’s Copy window, which somehow broke some time around 10.6.5
  • fixed a bug that could cause ignored applications to not be ignored
  • several under-the-hood improvements

LazyMouse is a Preference Pane that moves your cursor to the default button whenever a dialog box appears on your screen. In other words, it will save you time moving the mouse to dismiss dialogs.
