How about taking another look at the Help Us Help You page that is linked to header of every page in this forum? I do not and have never experienced anything you describe on macOS.

Unsure if I've said something out of line here - have I missed something?

Only thing we know about your current setup is Zoom, Chrome and PT 2023.6

I'd be interested if other people had the same issues as me. Running Chrome, Zoom, OBS and Pro Tools seems to batter the graphics processor, but I'd expect M1 to be able to handle a few processes running at the same time as low track count Pro Tools session.

Please move this if it's in the wrong forum.

I also have a fully loaded (incl. 10Gbit ethernet) M1 Mac Mini and latest macOS & other software. I am using Bluetooth keyboard and trackpad, but have never experienced lagging mouse. I do not use Chrome nor Zoom.

I suggest you backup and do a clean install of your software. Do not use any kind of migration tool but install everything manually and copy files back from the backup.

On another note, are you using iCloud desktop with slow internet?

Your RAM is likely running low. Check your system monitor. Chrome and Zoom are system hogs. 16GB is not enough RAM for all of those RAM hungry applications. Why do you need Chrome, Zoom, and OBS? If the Video Engine in Pro Tools is enabled and you don’t need it, turn it off. This will buy you some RAM

That would make sense. However the SSD of M1 Mac Mini is just as fast as DDR memory of yesteryear's PC, so mouse lagging because of swapping would also mean internal storage is full. I would rather point my finger at Chrome and/or Zoom.

It's deffo something to do with hardware acceleration - if I turn off Hardware Acceleration in Chrome, and/or I turn off Enable GPU in Pro Tools, things go back to normal. There's loads of RAM left, plus the swap on an NVME is fast, so I can't imagine it's RAM. Changing GPU processing of apps makes a night and day difference.
