Mouse slows down program

I am creating a game in java based on a runnable thread and Graphics. It also implements mouse listener.
Even though it does not implement mouse motion listener when i move the mouse it slows down the program.
Is there a way to get java to completely ignore the interuptts produced when the mouse is moved?

I agree. Here's the link:
