    According to this article @ CNET, you might just need to have your computer try to detect it again.

    I am fairly sure I remember reading somewhere that you cant use the BT MM with a PC :mad:

    But then I could be wrong.

    I have the bluetooth keyboard and might mouse. They work, BUT:

    1) When you first start I have to turn them both off and back on again and wait 3 minutes.

    2) When the Windows XP goes to sleep the above trick needs to be down and often does not work requiring me to hit the power button and restart the computer.

    This is on an C2D 20" imac.

    The Dell's Bluetooth software found the mouse and even recognized it by name, but the Mighty Mouse was never able to assume control of the cursor. Apple advised us that the Mighty Mouse was meant to be used with a Mac, and it appears that its advice was correct.


    it was in Cnet review
    may be i have to wait until Loepard release to use that mouse

    My Wireless MM worked perfectly with Windows Vista - I didn't have to do anything.

    ...Although Windows XP might be different.
