If you exercise care when plugging and unplugging (hold only plug, not wire, insert and pull absolutely straight, no wiggling, etc) you should get a decent life from the mouse, plug, and jack. If you are lax with plugging and pulling then you will get poor life from them.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

At what point do you unplug the mouse? Before, during, or after shutdown?

Hi Kunal, any small Socket can wear eventually due to much usage.

The electrical Contacts inside the Socket become less springy, lose tension, causing poor or no contact. Same happened with the RS232 / D Type serial sockets on Desktops.

If the Mouse itself became unresponsive, I would suspect a cable problem. Generally this occurs close to the Connector / Plug at the end of its cable.due to frequent bending.Test on another Laptop to prove.

Often missed, is problems with (Earphone and Mike) Jack Sockets can be a combination of the above and the Jack Plugs themselves. The Plugs should be 3.5mm diameter, but many are in fact 3mm. This is a considerable difference, often only apparent when compared together.

Recently I surprised one of the Maplins Guys, when we checked a Plug clearly labelled 3.5mm and found it was much smaller.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

"do this causes damage to any of the mouse." ?

@Kunal2020

No.
But, You May Damage Hardware, Like the Mouse Connector, Laptop Connector (PS/2,Serial Port or USB), Wire, The Pins inside the connector, ...

Good Luck.

Ok so I can conclude here then-
1. Unplugging and plugging the cable into the pc agian n again when it is working will damage both hardware and also the mouse.
2. Doing the same ( unplugging/plugging) when it is off does less or no harm.
3.And care should be taken while plugging/unplugging the mouse.

following all this will give decent life to all the components.
thanks all for the help!

Why do you feel the need to unplug the mouse when you shut down the system?

Doing the best I can here... And remember, there's always more than one path to success. :)

Laptop. Probably needs to put away or pack for carrying.

How about using a wireless mouse and keyboard, then you can just leave the tiny receiver always plugged in.

This gives rise to another discussion that whether wireless/ or with wire mouse is best for gaming.
