    Is there a way to set up the programmable buttons on the Mighty Mouse to go BACK or FORWARD in Safari??

    I am coming from a MS Mouse and I had the 2 thumb buttons programmed for this.

    I am hoping there is a way I can do this or the Might Mouse may have to go back

    Thanks

    Not that I know of... there's only one side button (two sides you squeeze together) anyway. Of course, you can right click and go back and forward, but that's more of a pain.

    It's not possible to program the MM to page Safari. Right click opens a contextual menu that offers forward/back/reload.

    I've been using a Kensington PilotMouse Mini BT, but prefer the BT MM by far.

    BT MM Battery Query

    I've got a query regarding the battery life and the do's and don'ts..

    Basically, each time you put your mac to sleep should you be turning the mouse off (using the switch underneath)?

    Or can you leave it on and the mouse goes to sleep too?!

    I'm not sure whether the mouse uses any power when its still on, even though the mac if asleep/off and if it does, how much power would it use?

    I can see it becoming a big pain if you always had to switch the mouse off and then back on each time you had to use the mac..

    Any guidelines / opinions are very welcomed.

    Thanks
