I'm getting ready to install Boot Camp on my new iMac, and when reading the instructions on the Apple site I saw this in the FAQ:

"Are there any Macintosh features that I should not expect to work when running Windows XP on an Intel-based Macintosh computer?

Even after installling the Macintosh Drivers CD, the Apple Remote Control (IR), Apple Wireless (Bluetooth) keyboard or mouse, Apple USB Modem, MacBook Pro's sudden motion sensor, and MacBook Pro's ambient light sensor will not function correctly when running Windows."

I have a Logitech V270 Bluetooth mouse, and I am worried about it working when I boot to Windows XP in Boot Camp. Yet from reading other threads on this forum, it seems like people are using Bluetooth mouses (mice?) in Boot Camp with Windows XP. Do they work? Is it only the Apple Bluetooth mouse that has a problem? Or are they just saying you won't get all the features or something?

My mighty mouse works fine.

Also, I think many of those issues were resolved with 1.4, well at least the ambient light sensor now works in XP as my keyboard does backlight.

Yes, my Logitech works fine. When you install boot camp, you install drivers from Apple for everything on your Mac to run in Windows including the Bluetooth hardware, iSight, AirPort card, everything. The only annoyance is having to switch between Command and Control when going between Mac and Windows. I keep trying to copy stuff to the clipboard only to have the start menu pop up.
