    I'm curious if anyone else has this problem. I have always set the side buttons on my Mighty Mouse (wireless) to Expose (Desktop).

    In Snow Leopard it doesn't work. It has the option, but once set, the side buttons on the mouse do nothing. If I set them to Expose (All Windows) or Expose (App Windows), it works fine.

    Anyone else?

    I hope there's a fix coming soon. I am so used to squeezing the mouse to see the desktop that I keep doing it every few minutes. :(

    I registered just to answer this question, because this is the first place I came to find an answer...

    I fixed this with a mighty mouse nice and easy- simply go to the Mouse preferences panel, click on the button 4 drop-down and select "other". All you have to do is navigate to Expose (which is now in the utilities folder) and select it. Works as good as new.

    I was having this problem with my VX nano, but I just checked and now it works again! No idea what's changed.
