Re: problem with wireless mouse
Sad to say that Cordless Mouse consumes power so fast thats why many of us are having the same trouble. Besides, the quality/price of the re-chargable batteries greatly matter when considering their power backup

Here's a guide;
What do the battery lights mean on my mouse?
Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Single long green blink
Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on.
Slow green blink
Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly.
Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging.
Presenter Mouse (Japanese version)
Laser pointer is on.
Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver).
Slow red blink
Batteries are low and need to be replaced.
Slow red blink
Batteries are low and need recharging.
Fast red blink
Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error. Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad. Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them.
Presenter Mouse (Standard version)
Laser pointer is on.
you might have to uninstall the mouse then restart your computer then reinstall the mouse and its drivers make sure the battery is good (has full charge)also you might test the usb device for the mouse is inserted correctly into the usb port (if applicable) click start control panel mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons,pointers,pointer options and hardware under hardware you can troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have options to update driver,rollback driver or uninstall and under hardware you can troubleshoot in xp hope this helps
I still have the manual for my mouse. Model number 64321.
When this mouse was manufactured it used NiCad batteries which developed a memory much more than the newer batteries. The older NiCad batteries needed to be conditioned occasionally so Kensington provided a way to do that with the charging base.
The red light is for indicating discharge status of NiCad batteries.
The red light will flash quickly when you press the battery discharge button on the bottom of the base. This indicates that you now have 5 seconds to place the mouse in the charging base for battery discharge.
The red light will flash flash more slowly when the battery is being discharged.
After the battery is fully discharged, the base will then charge the batteries.
It should be noted that very few manufacturers of products that utilized NiCad batteries provided a "battery conditioning" feature. Kensington was unique in this regard. Battery conditioning allowed NiCad batteries to have a longer useful life.
Now maybe you can help me.... I lost my power supply that plugs into the USB connector. If you have yours, can you tell me what the output voltage is and what the polarity is of the inner pin. This will be marked right on the power supply base.
I plan to just get a generic power supply from Radio Shack, but I need the voltage value and polarity. Until then, I can still use the mouse, but it won't charge. FOr now, I'm just using standard AAA batteries.
Most wireless mice will hibernate after a short period of inactivity. If something bumps the desk or moves the mouse it will start scanning again. If you don't like the light, you could try a laser mouse (no red LED flashing).
cycle the batteries in a external charger a fex times (charge then discharge) I suspect that over the years of using then putting it in its dock the batteries have had a very erratic charge discharge cycle cycling them as I suggest should bring them back.
