Mouse Cursor Disappearing in Vista Second Display

I made the plunge to Vista a few weeks back and have really been enjoying my new setup. My one major beef has been that sometimes when my monitor goes into power save mode, my mouse cursor disappears when it wakes up. As you can imagine this is less than optimal when attempting to use one’s GUI, and it really pissed me off numerous times.

The only fix I could find originally was to sleep my notebook and open it back up. This took a few minutes out of my productivity each time and was totally tehsuck.

But, I found an excellent low-tech solution. In the control panel settings, I enabled the super hot ‘mouse cursor tail’ and my problems are gone! My cursor is always around when I need it.
