    Yes, I have changed the batteries... The mouse will work after resetfor a minute or two then it stops communicating with the receiver. Both the receiver and the mouse revert to a solid red light, the "communication flashing" stops.

    Hi Sybabe!

    I do appreciate your effort! It appears the mouse has an attitude of its own! Mine is still not working perhaps as you have phrased "It's not jealous eough yet". I'll try patience with it!

This may be a "duh", BUT, have you checked the battery of the mouse? You can either test the battery with a mutlimeter for its charge, and most likely, it would be gone, or simply replace the battery.

    Okay, let's approach it a little differently. Did you do anything different right before the mouse stopped working? Installed or removed any applications? You don't necessarily have to rate this post. I am trying to gather more information to help with your issue

    Ok, the mouse's light should stay solid, as well as the receiver so that is a good thing. From my experience, sometimes, wireless mouse could be VERY sensitive and temperamental. I switched my batteries out maybe more than 10 times. The batteries were good, but for some reason, decided to act complacent. After I settled back into my routine, using the trackpad for about a day, the mouse decided it wants to work again, and it has been working ever since. This does not seem very logical...but the way I explain it to myself is, the mouse needs to get jealous first (see that you have another alternateive) before it gets out of its lazy mode.) Now, if this doesn't work...granted, it's' only a hypothesis, then you may want to change your method. (Think of how you relate to others, how you get their attention, and it just might be crazy enough to work) Okay, so I've let you in on my secret. If this doesn't work...please don't give me a bad i said, it's just a hypothesis, and you can experiment and have fun in a frustrating situation.=)

My brother and I have the AWE01us1 chill hub. Initially it worked fine. We have a wireless microsoft mouse and USB adapter is connected to 1 of the 4 USB ports. Occasionally the mouse stops working...

When I typed AWE01us1 chill hub in my search engine I came up with Targus as the manufacturer of the chill hup not the laptop. Before buying products I would read customer rates and comments on the products. My public library has a free link to consumer reports, or has product ratings.

I'm also getting mixed info regarding the mouse, is the mouse wireless, stopped working, and you somehow overrode the wireless with a USB cable and that stopped working. I'm assuming the mouse worked fine before the installation of the chill hub. If you read the reviews on Amazon, I'm seeing other types of USB problems. Try returning the chill hub and purchasing another brand. You may have to call customer support for the laptop. Let me know if this was helpful.

Targus AMW15US wireless mouse

First are the batteries good?
Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps you. Bud
