Hi,

I just received a new laptop and have a Logitech Wireless Optical mouse. It
hasn't really been a problem until today. It seems like it loses the
connection every 5 minutes and I am constantly having to turn the mouse over
and hit the "Connect" button.

Any ideas? Suggestions?

Thanks.

Does the IR Receiver connect to your PC via a USB port.

If so make sure that you have not set the USB hub or ports to power saving
modes. Sometimes there are defaults that switch of the port to save power
for laptops and of course it will cause the problem that you have.

Go to Power Settings in BIOS and in Windows to make sure that neither
setting is the casue.

Thanks BAR.

I was losing my mind, so I tried changing the batteries. Seems the new
batteries that were in my mouse weren't so new. I haven't had the problem
since changing the batteries.

I should have know it was going to be something simple.

I know that the newer Intellipoint 5.2 drivers now have a battery indicator
for the wireless mice. Not sure about the MouseWare drivers?

Also using cordless mouse and can install MouseWare software from Logitech
website
for your version
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/downloads/finder/US/E...

Can easily check battery status from mouse icon on taskbar beside clock and
will let you
know when battery level reaches critical level and needs to be changed. I
usually need to
change batteries every 2/3 weeks so use rechargeable batteries and keep
several charged
for immediate replacement.

U better stop ûûûûing up your mind. And buy yourself normal mouse.MX510
will do the trick. And if you want so cool glideing i can adviceyou to
have one of Steelpads. 4D is my favourite.
