I have a laptop on the TV stand. The lid is closed. The wireless keyboard is turned off. Every time I move around on the bed, the mouse cursor on the TV would move a little. It freaked me out. The mouse movement stopped when I moved the bed away from the wall, as if a trapped spirit has been set free and no longer needed the mouse to signal me.

Then I decided to look under bed. There was a mouse that I must have dropped by mistake. It was turned on and moved a little when the bed moved. I am very disappointed I am not able to report to you that a spirit/ghost/alien was responsible.

If I had not taken the time to investigate, this would have seemed like an unnatural event -- perhaps like so many reported unnatural events? Anyway, it was fun.

I doubt there is anything supernatural about it, I used to have a Dell Laptop and the cursor had a mind of its own a lot of the time, most of the time, it would shoot up to the right hand corner and just stay there. I did find when I used a regular USB desktop mouse with it, the cursor worked as it should.

Must have been Interesting for while to see this. Reminder me of an experience I had when youger. I lived in an old building that had a noisy radiator in my room. One night instead of the usual clanging it made a sound like a wheezing person exhaled. It was right by my bed and I was half asleep so I freaked and ran out of the room. It happened again a few moments later and I realized it was not the boogeyman under the bed. It did not help that the apartment complex had acres of grass that could be creepy at night and we had numerous weirdos in the area as it was. I laugh today though about it.

From my bedroom, what sounded like a radio set to a talk station and stuck inbetween the walls.... Was just the water in the downspout of the rain gutter.

I couldn't find the remote for my Apple TV a week ago, so I used the app on my phone. My TV kept acting up: turning on by itself, switching the Apple TV on. I tried resetting it, powering everything down and up again. Thought there was something seriously wrong with it. Then I found my remote: it was on the coffee table under a magazine, and every time I moved something on the table it was activating the remote. Of course, it might have been a poltergeist that moved the remote under the magazine. But it was probably just me.

Maybe your wireless planchette is on the same frequency and was left on?

There was a dropped mouse that was still powered, also affecting the computer. Since it’s now solved, and not paranormal, I’m closing this.
