if it is an optical mouse, possibly the LED went bye bye and its flickering is causing the movements when it gets a signal from the sensor again

@Meebs, thanks, that sounds exactly what it IS doing :D . I'll get a new one.

@WWD, There is no way to get into the mouse. Easier to get a new one!

Keep in mind, LED mouses flicker if you turn them upside down. see if it flickers if you just lift it a bit to look under it
