Bug Description

On opening up xubuntu 14.04 the cursor/pointer arrow freezes/locks up on mewhen trying to put my password in on the logong window. Sometimes it unfreezes but most of the time I'm locked onto that screen and I must do a 'hard crash', aka shutdown the computer with the on/off button, I don't like doing that at all. So then I turn on the computer hoping that it isn't frozen, the cursor but most of the times it is, very frustrating to me. So then I might go to the windows side of the partitioned HDD to have the cursor act normal, stay there for a bit and restart the computer and then maybe the cursor will be 'not frozen to logon. If that doesn't work I might go to one of the ubuntu recovery modes to see if I can get it working there and then restart the computer again. I think that is all i do and i hope this issue can be resolved sooner than later.

PLEASE DISREGARD BUG DESCRIPTION ABOVE UNLESS IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE FROZEN CURSOR, SORRY THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME IN FILLING OUT A 'BUG REPORT'.
