    The scroll button doesn't work a few times a month... I have pressed hard and moved the ball around trying to clean it... If I take it to an Applestore, will they give me a new one?

    The mouse isn't the same quality as the iMac

    I haven't had many problems with mine...But if you rub the scroll button against some rough but soft material (I use my thigh when I'm wearing jeans) quite vigorously, that seems to do the trick for most people. I didn't notice any problems before I did this, though after I tried it the mouse did seem to work a bit better...

    i just opened my mighty mouse and cleaned it that way.. it works

    only bad thing is i had to break off the gray ring that holds the main wire in place... it really isn't a big deal though, i can open it in a matter of minutes now ;)
