I recently purchased a G5 corded mouse. And I love it. I have set up setpoint, and even updated it to the most current version. I am running XPsp3
The problem I have is that whenever I launch many full screen games, including Valve's Team Fortress 2 , my mouse5(default 'forward' in a browser) button acts up. If I press the mouse5 button in game, the mouse resets it's sensitivity, and the LED drops to the bottom of the three. and all three sensitivity settings default to the lowest. I have tried adjusting settings in TF2, setpoint, and the control panel, but none of this works.

There are a few steps you can try to troubleshoot this issue:
Try a PMU Reset: * Turn of your iMac if it is already turned off * Disconnect all connections to the iMac except the power cord * Now disconnect the power cord for approximately 20 seconds * Reconnect just the power cable the keyboard, mouse and power cord, and then power your iMac G5 up.
* Check to see if the iMac boots up normally without power interruption.
* If the iMac G5 shuts off again, try these steps, another recommendation would be to remove all connections including the power cord, and lay the iMac G5 on soft cloth face down and with a philips screwdriver, remove the plate on the bottom of the iMac G5 where your RAM memory is located. Before removing the RAM however, touch your hand on the metal boot to discharge any static current you carry for approximately 5 seconds.
Now remove each RAM card and then reseat (re-install) each card.
Restore the RAM card cover with your Philips screwdriver, reconnect your power cable, keyboard and mouse and turn on your iMac G5.
See if this second procedure helps if the first procedure does not work.
The same thing happened to me today. Somehow, something uninstalled my setpoint mouse software?!?! While I was actually using the mouse?!?! (it just stopped moving all of a sudden)
Don't ask me how/why this happened but I fixed it by unplugging the MX1000--both power and usb connection, plugging in an old serial mouse, rebooting the computer, opening mouse properties, going to the Mouse settings (in Control Panel), clicking the Setpoint tab, telling it to look for an update to the Setpoint program, letting it download and install the program automatically, then unplugging the old serial mouse, plugging in the MX1000 (usb first, them Power) and Voila'! Working as it should once again, even without a reboot. :o) I love this mouse--perfect size, fast, programmable, accurate, long battery life, Perfect!
try switching the right click to another button using setpoint. if the button works perfect then it is the micro switch for the right click contact logitech. if it drops turn off setpoint and try the regular right click if that drops just may be a glitch in the game. check for mouse controls in the game to tune the mouse.
If you are talking about the left mouse button not on the sides, your mouse may have some buildup in the mouse on the sensor that says it was being touched. if you remove the screws and blow it out with a can of air, it may resolve the issue if not i would check the warranty and see about getting it replaced if there is no warranty. If you are talking about the mouse buttons on the left side of the mouse, you need to install the software from the following site. http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/441/135&cl=us,en I would follow the instructions and update the firmware and then install the setpoint software as well. If it still doesn't the mouse will need to be replaced.
If you go into the logitech mouse setup program "Setpoint" there should be a section that tells the mouse what each button will do. It's probably got "Nothing" or something similar selected. See if you can find one that says "Right Click" or something along those lines, and select that, and press OK/Apply to save settings, and see if it changes anything.
Try setting the buttons to "generic" in SetPoint and then assign fuctions via the game options.
From Logitech Knowledge Base: The information in this article applies to the following products:
All Logitech Mice
Logitech SetPoint Cause:
Most games that support a mouse will give you options to program
or assign specific functions to various buttons on the mouse. These
games normally look for generic mouse buttons when attempting to bind
the mouse buttons to a game function. If the button is set to another
function in SetPoint (such as Universal Scroll, Back, Forward, etc), the game may not see the mouse button as available to bind. This mainly affects buttons 3, 4, and 5. Solution:
To resolve this issue, set the button you wish to
program to a generic value in SetPoint. The following values should be
used if you are having problems binding buttons in games. Mouse Button 3 (The Middle Button/Scroll Wheel):
In SetPoint, assign this button as Middle Button or Generic Button.
Note for MX Revolution users: You must disable Logitech Smart Shift Technology or the Middle Button option will not be available in SetPoint. Mouse Buttons 4 and 5 (Normally the thumb buttons):
In SetPoint, assign the thumb button(s) as Generic Button. Note that these buttons will still work in most browsers for forward and back. It is not necessary to assign these buttons to Forward and Back in SetPoint for this functionality.
