You don't specify the make/model of the notebook, but I had a similar
problem with one of my IBM Thinkpads (a 240) that was resolved by
upgrading the BIOS.  The problem showed up under 2.4 kernels - haven't
tested a 2.6 yet.  The laptop/mouse would freeze for a split second when
polling the battery. A BIOS update from IBM's web site fixed it.
