    Is anyone having any luck with this? The bluetooth MM isn't bad but I'd like to be able to use it when I boot windows. Apple doesn't seem to support it but I thought somebody would have some insight.

    For some reason I thought I'd seen somewhere that the BT Mighty Mouse wouldn't work in XP. Having said that I tried the other day and eventually it paired up and seems to work a treat! :)

    More details please! Did you have to install anything extra?

    Got it Working

    I got mine to work using passcode: 0000

    It pairs up fine, but the right click is really shotty (I have to power cycle the mouse to get it to come back in BootCamp).

    Hope this helps!

    Do you guys have some kind of 'bluetooth management' in your control panel?

    Are you guys on CD or C2D?

    I have nothing that looks useful... I don't even have trackpad options in the control panel.... only generic mouse controls.

    I don't think my drivers installed correctly.

    I didn't use a passkey to pair my MM - I selected the 'don't use a passkey' option.

    As for BT management, sometimes I've had the icon in the system tray but it's not always visible so to pair the mouse I went thru the control panel to set up the pairing. Initially my macbook didn't see or recognise the mouse so I gave up. I tried it again shortly after and again it didn't show up in the list of devices but I got called away for about 10-15mins and when I got back the mouse had been recognised and then I managed to get it paired.

    As has been mentioned about the right click - I've had the same problems sometimes it will take a good few clicks for it to work and there is a very slight delay (longer than a 'normal' mouse I reckon) for the menu to appear on screen.

    I also noticed that my mouse doesn't appear to use Apple drivers.... In the device manager my mouse is just listed as a bluetooth HID mouse and all the drivers are provided by microsoft...
