Re: Mouse drains Batteries
Hope that you are wellJ If you mouse is an older model that does not have an on/off switch, this could be a continuing problem.Be sure that that is an available option with your next purchase.
If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.

So much for Wal-Mart tech support. If your mouse is not working, first check the batteries to be sure they are good. You wireless mouse has a USB "antenna" or sending unit. It may have a button on it that says "connect." If so, push it. The mouse itself has a little button on the bottom that says "connect." Push that one next. It should now work. If it doesn't, switch USB ports and try again. And no, we don't charge for this answer.
Sounds like it was draining batteries at a rapid pace. If you were having to change batteries everyday for a while, that tells me that there is a problem with the board inside of the mouse and since you can't buy those parts for the mouse, it would need to be replaced.
Only other suggestion would be to make sure your using quality batteries like Energizer, Duracell, etc and if its still draining to much then you know for sure at that point the mouse is bad.
This may be caused by weak batteries, or interference by some nearby appliance (the worst case is another wireless mouse, of course: happened all the time in an office with six identical workstations, even to the two that were beyond a wall. But also wireless - not cellular - phones may interfere). Also the positions of receiver and mouse may play a part. Once sure the batteries work, try placing the receiver and mouse in different positions and see if it helps. Otherwise, the receiver antenna could be defective.
No need to disable the touchpad they should both work at the same time. Have you tried both the mice on another PC?. The first mouse should have the correct software already installed but you will most probably need to install software for the microsoft mouse. I hope you have tried resetting by hitting the button on the receiver then while its flashing the button on bottom of the mouse? If all this fails do have any other USB devices you can test on laptop?......good luck
usually on the bottom of the mouse there is a little door with two notches or a single vertical notch which you need to carefully pry open and then insert your batteries as shown inside with + and - denotions.
Turn the mouse over and find the small
rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it to
Reset/Connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly.
If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press
the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or
Hope this helps you. Bud
I contacted Gaeway Support. They quickly answered and suggested that I change the batteries in my wireless mouse and/or keyboard. I did. It was the mouse. As soon as the new batteries were in, the popup went away and stayed away.
