Acer Aspire 5740 Mouse freezes on wake-up, beeps on startup

My Acer Aspire 5740 has had a recurring problem. When i start it up, it beeps repeatedly after the Acer screen has shown. It won't proceed with a boot. If I press Cont+Alt+Del (sometimes a few times), I can get it to load windows. Then, once windows is loaded, it acts as if an enter button is depressed. It blows through the user login screen (I do not have it set to require a password), and immediately pulls up the start menu. It feels like a button is stuck because the mouse won't move. Again, if I press Cont+Alt+Del I will get the shutdown/lock/task manager menu. And then the mouse works, I can press cancel, and everything seems fine. But if I leave long enough for sleep mode, the same thing happens when Windows opens upon wake-up. This was happening to me awhile ago (maybe a year), and after trying unsuccessfully to find a solution, the problem just kind of stopped. But now it is back. Any ideas what the problem is or how to fix it? I feel like similar problems have received suggestions of a driver problem, but I have tried reinstalling and haven't solved the problem.
