Can X give up the mouse when it is idle?

Can X give up the mouse when it is idle?

OS: Linux 1.1.49

Is there a way to make X (Xfree 2.1.1) give up the mouse device, when X
is idle. (in the same way that X give up the mouse when switching VT)

In case you wander why I need to do that. I have a second modem connected to
/dev/cua2 (have the same IRQ as the mouse, /dev/cua0). I would like to use
the second modem (to page me and monitor my phone calls), when I am not at
home (X is idle). Now I can use the second modem only when I switch VT. (I
had to disable selection).
