    I have bought one of the new Mighty Mouses with bluetooth, but it repeatedly loses it's bluetooth connection to the computer. I replaced the batteries 3 times and have re-paired the mouse with the computer however this still happens. Does anybody have this problem or know how to fix it?

    I have a BT MM and it never cuts out. Are you near any big RF towers that could be near the same frequency and causing interference? Are you using lithium batteries?

    hm... I use lithium batteries and the connection was absolutely perfect. that is, until the batteries died, I was using the one-time use lithiums that Apple gives you.

    Try cleaning the trackball with a lint-free cloth. Also, clean the laser bit at the bottom of the Mighty Mouse. Anything that gets stuck in to the trackball or laser can cause the Mighty Mouse to be unresponsive at times. Maybe there's a problem with Bluetooth on your Mac. Do you get any other problems when connecting other Bluetooth devices? As for me, I don't have any problems with my Mighty Mouse. If you have iStatPro, it can tell you how much battery you have left on your Mighty Mouse when it's connected.

    I also use iStatPro to keep track of my MM battery, but if you don't have it, you can check it in System Preferences>Keyboard & Mouse>Bluetooth. There's a graph bar display of your MM battery there. Good luck,
