Mouse not working on startup

I am on ubuntu budgie LTS 22.04. I installed ubuntu budgie a few days ago and it was working perfectly on initial install. I restarted the Laptop and it boots perfectly normal but the mouse doesn’t work (when it does it’s extremely lagging to the point it is unusable). The strange thing is it works once i put the computer to sleep and then turn it on again.

Do you happen to be using nvidia graphics?

This Q mentioned mouse jerkyiness … maybe something here helps?

No I’m not using nvidia graphics
