    No idea

    I was saying that if you used an analog one, you could use the ADC to convert the axises to measurements. As far as power up, the mouse actually transmits an ASCII "M", not ctrl-m.

    If the pad was analog inside, you could rewire it. To be honest, I don't know much about the innards of USB.

    Here's a link to a schematic and code for emulating a PS/2 mouse using a 16F84a.
