    It's probably broken are there any cracks or some sort?

    No, no cracks or anything
    It only dropped about 2 ft, and was onto soft carpet so am not too impressed.

    Just thought maybe there was some kind of reset button or something. What a pain.

    And the worst thing is, none of my unpowered usb hubs work with the iMac, so I have had to use one of my precious 3 usb ports for a backup wireless logitech mouse, which also works poorly with the mac
    :(

    This maybe a stupid suggestion but have you looked at the underside an made sure the little door that closes over the optics isn't closed. That shuts off the Mighty Mouse when closed..

    Sorry to hear that.
    I think you're screwed.

    Today I dropped my Mighty Mouse 4 times about to fit onto a hard surface, I kept knocking it off the thing I keep it on on accident.
    There isn't a scratch on it.

    you can open it by taking the seal off the bottom and just unpiecing it to find out whats wrong but youll need superglue to stick the seal back on the bottom again :)

    Bring it to Apple, and see if the might fix/exchange it.
