Not sure, but I had a similar problem many years ago. I fixed it
by adding some xset commands to ~/.xsession :

    xset s on
    xset m 2 2

See the xset man page for what they do.

"I have found that Big Design Up Front environments attract people who
want to talk about software development, while iterative environments
attract people who want to develop software. Is it any surpise that in
companies where BDUF is predominant, nobody wants to stoop to coding?
Everyone wants to be an 'architect' or a 'Business Analyst' or a 
'Product Manager'." -- Reg Braithwaite
