Hi everyone! I just bought my first Mac. Macbook Pro 15inch base model (Late2011) :D

I also bought a Razer Naga for playing WoW. Just wondering why its not working when the Mac is running on battery only. I always have to plug-in the charger to make it work.

Anyone else having the same issue?

Tnx!

Mine is the wired version. But you can get the wired/wireless combo version.

I got updated drivers for both mac and windows. Same issue. Maybe I should try turning off all the lights on the mouse. Reckon it eats a lot of power?

Yes but does the wireless version require a dongle? There shouldnt be any reason to continue using usb ports for mouses when bluetooth is available.

I think the only Razor mouse that does not require dongle is Razor Orochi as it uses Bluetooth. All the others use some wireless standard and need dongle.

Damn it. I was hoping for a wireless alternative to my Logitech MX518 (best mouse you'd ever use).

The next best thing I know of so far is the Logitech MX Performance Mouse, but the feel of that mouse, and especially the MX Revolution mouse, is that they both 'glide' a pixel or so extra either before you stop moving the mouse or after. Theyre not accurate.
