Microsoft wireless mouse 4000 doesnt select tabs/icons
I have had the mouse for a year and it has a fully charged battery in. The same problem occurs on two different laptop, which makes me think it is not a software problem. Basically the mouse works fine for a minute or two and then suddenly leaves me without being able to select any windows/icons/tabs....i have to press ctrl/alt/del and then it allows me to close that window fine and the process starts again...fine for a few minutes...and so on....... appreciate any ideas!

Try disconnecting the camera from the USB port and reinstall
the CD software program that came with the mouse. When the program asks you to connect the camera to
the USB port, do so and it should work. Hope this helps. Bud

Microsoft wireless mice typically put an icon in the system notification tray (right side of the taskbar, next to the clock) showing the mouse's current status. If you hover over this icon, the battery status should be displayed (it may just say either "OK" or "battery low").
Just to clarify, this is a wireless optical mouse, right? Please try the steps below:
1. Use fresh batteries. 2. Make sure that the mouse is turned on. 3. Check if there's a connect button on the wireless receiver and underneath the mouse. If there is, try holding down the two connect buttons at the same time for five seconds and then release them both. 4. Try moving the mouse. 5. Make sure that there are no possible wireless interference between the wireless receiver and mouse like the base of a cordless phone, cell phone etc.
If same problem occur after doing the steps below, then you may want to contact the manufacturer for RMA. This Microsoft 4000 has a three year limited warranty.
The red laser light stopped working on mine and it turned out to be the connetion between the battery tray and the circuit board. There is a metal tab on the circuit board and a matching one on the battery tray. When the battery tray slides in correctly the two tabs touch and viola (!), my red laser light came back on. Maybe one tab or the other got bent when I slammed the tray in crooked when replacing a battery- who knows.
Try this - Go to control panel > mouse > hardware tab > properties > power management tab Make sure the entry "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" is checked.
If you meant that your screen saver doesnt come on because the mouse is plugged in, it could be because the surface on which your mouse is rested is uneven or extremely smooth, causing the mouse to move, or that the mouse sensitivity properties are set very high. When not in use, try placing the mouse on a piece of dark cloth and see if this helps. Or in the steps mentioned above, make sure "Allow this device to bring the computer out of standby" is UNchecked. Note that you cannot use the mouse to get out of screen saver mode in this option. you will have to tap the spacebar..
Dear friend, I think that you are right, please check the manufacturing date of the mouse if one year has been passed that means it is ture.please also try to check your mouse after changing all the batteries of your wireless mouse. thanks.
