It sounds like the mouse is going into a sleep mode, moving it wakes it up, what exactly is wrong with that?
Anyway, try another mouse that has some form of lights and see if it exhibits the same behavior.
You can also try going into your device manager, opening up the properties of your mouse (by double clicking it) and going to the Power Management tab, make sure "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is not checked (if its like mine, the option will be grayed out anyway). Another thing you can try is going into your power options, then Advanced power settings, under USB Settings -> USB selective suspend settings try changing it to Disabled (if its enabled) and see if the behavior stops or not.
It sounds like a system issue not a mouse issue though, so I'm willing to bet its something that needs changing in your system configuration to "fix" the minor issue.
