Known problem. It happens on all aircraft. It's a FSX issue, not a PMDG one, but some aircraft suffer more than others, probably has something to do with the number or clickspots, and a 737 has lots of switches. (apparently the Ifly suffers from this as well)

Try an disable your mouse shadow that kind of helps a little, but i will say it does not resolve the issues all together.. Steve

I've never noticed I had this issue until last night as I'm tweaking my graphic settings. At the gate my fps can sit around 35-50 then drop immediately by approx 10-15 frames when the arrow is showing, if I leave the mouse alone it goes back up when the arrow disappears. Can't remember if it did it in Windows 7 Pro (x64) but is currently doing it in XP (x64). Changing the pointer properties doesn't seem to do anything, its always shown as an arrow. Wish I knew a way of helping it as I use the mouse as I would my right hand, I like to click the switches in the vc as I would IRL

Try parking the cursor in the top left hand corner of the screen when you're not using it.John

Sure your cursor hides itself if no movement within a few seconds, well mine does. FPS will also increase if cursor is shown but I move the cursor arrow onto the tab menu at the top rather than inside the main display
