    Anyone notice that when putting in new batteries in the mouse that it gets hot for a while?

    Be careful, the batteries go into the mouse in a somewhat unorthodox way. Double check that they aren't in the wrong way.

    wow, I can't believe someone would even type that. I'm not retarted and second if you put the batteries in wrong it simply won't work. I got a new mouse and it works way better. Maybe the first breed was a bad one.

    this is off topic.

    but what kind of range do you get with your wireless mouse? also have you tried it with lid closed mode. mine seem to become erratic if the lid is closed and i am even about 10-12 feet.

    is that normal?

    I get great range with my Apple bluetooth mouse and my Powerbook. I can leave my Powerbook in my living room, and go into any room in my house except the laundry room and garage---and still get a nice signal. House is around 3000 sq ft.

    well soemthing seems tobe the problem then, because my apple wireless keyboard also screw up if i am not even 12 feet away. on the other hand, it works at amazing distances with my PC.

    i will have to talk to apple about it.

    thanks
