Hi i have the item above and have used it for a few years
on various imacs/ibooks, gone to use it with my ibook today and it has suddenly stopped(if you go into system preferences, the ibook sees
the USB adaptor-and lists it correctly and there are fresh batteries
in the mouse but still no joy) any ideas before i throw it away?

Re: logitech cordless click N231 mouse
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 burron and then press the button on the mouse. This should
be fdone when ever you change batteries or glitch. Hope this helps

Hi there Linwood When you say mouse are you talking about the trackpad on the ibook? You can do a forced restart on the ibook by holding down the start key until the ibook restarts of course you will lose any changes that you have made to any documents you have open. However, by holding down the cmd key and the tab key together you can go a particular program by using the arrow keys, once in the program and the changed document that you have open by pressing down the cmd key and the s key together will save the changes. DO THIS BEFORE DOING THE FORCED RESTART.
With the OS X Installer CD in the drive, try booting your mac and holding down the option key immediately after you hear the start up chime. This will (hopefully) load a firmware boot loader that will show available start up discs. Hopefully the OSX installer will show up as CD Icon. Select the Icon with your mouse or keyboard and press enter to start up with the Installer CD. From the installer you should be able to erase and format the drive as Mac OS Extended before installing OS X.
If the computer still won't boot from the CD double check that it is a retail OS X installer CD. If your CD has "software restore" or "ibook restore" or any other varient of restore written on the label; or if it names a particular model such as "ibook install" or "imac install" it is not a retail copy and may not be a bootable disc. A retail copy will only name the version of the operating system followed by the word install written on it's label and usually have a brief instruction on booting from the CD by holding the C key at startup.
Try resetting the PRAM by turning on the iBook then holding option + command + P + R and wait till u hear another chime. If it still freezes, it may indicate an application may be causing it to lock up hold shift after you hear the chime to boot OS X into safe boot.
Acting on advice from another FixYa string, we blew out the mouse and dock several times with canned air. It performed slightly better, but then as we continued to use the mouse it suddenly cleared and is working almost 100% now.
From reading earlier strings, I'm wondering why Logitech (in its product material received on purchase) doesn't recommend this as periodic maintenance for the mouse?
