    When ever I reboot in to Windows 7 Ultimate, everything loads fine and fast however the mouse if unresponsive for up to 45 seconds after everything else.

    The keyboard works and starts up just fine.

    Is it a Bluetooth mouse? There might be something weird going on with the Bluetooth drivers that are not connecting the mouse right away.

    Yes, it's a brand new 27" iMac with the associated keyboard and mouse. The iMac was just bought yesterday.

    I'm sure it's something small or driver related but didn't know where to start with reloading the driver.

    Hello All,

    I recieved my Magic Mouse and it works great under OSX but I couldn't get it working under Windows at all. Searching here and around the web, I've compiled a guide on how I got it working. Hopefully, Apple will release proper drivers in the future but for now, here is what I did:

    Turn mouse off...if you have already tried installing, remove the device and then turn the mouse off. To remove it, open Start, type "Devices" and press enter. Select "remove device"...Now let's get started:

    1) Update the Bluetooth Driver.
    Open Device Manager.
    Start > (Right Click Computer) > Properties. Click Device Manager in upper left of this window. Double click (Bluetooth Radios), Right click on "Generic Bluetooth" and select "Properties". Open the Driver tab and then select "Update Driver". Click "Browse my computer for driver software". On the next screen, towards the bottom, click on "Let me pick from a list of device drivers...". Uncheck "Show compatible hardware". Select "Apple" and then "Apple built in bluetooth". Done

    2)In the notification area of the task bar, right click on Bluetooth icon and select "Add a device". Turn on your mouse. It will show up on screen. Right click on the mouse icon. Select Properties. Select the "Services" tab and check the "Drivers for keyboard, mice, etc". The mouse may disappear from the screen since it's been added. Windows is still looking for other devices so click "Cancel".

    3) Disable power management for Bluetooth Radio. Open device manager, open Bluetooth Radios and right click on "Apple Bluetooth". Select the "Power Management". Uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

    4) Reboot computer. Mouse should be working in Windows 7/Vista now.

    * If you reboot and your mouse is still not working, click on the mouse two or three times. On my system, the mouse will not begin working until I do this, every time I boot my system. *

    Hope this helps,
