this issue only began when i started drawing on an art program using my mouse. sometimes the cursor would stop being able to click on things, it could still move but whatever available buttons would turn gray/"unavailable". for example i could sometimes open chrome and type in the search bar, but if i were to click on any part of the chrome tab then the cursor's click would no longer work on any part of chrome. originally this only occurred in the program after i used it for maybe 20 mins but recently it's been been happening to the rest of my apps even when i haven't used the program yet. the only way to fix this is to forcibly shut down my laptop because i can click on the start menu but i can't click anything on the menu, including the power on/off options
