Re: Light on mouse searches and doesn't turn off.
Hi, No need to turn off the mouse. Just walk away after shutting down the PC. Your mouse will "go to sleep" by itself. It usually takes my husbands mouse a few minutes but it does go to sleep. Hope this helps.

Go to your control panel of the computer. Click on the tab "Change mouse whell settings" If you do nto find such tab then search for that tab by puttin word "mouse" in the search box. There you can change scrolling setting. If it doesn't work then remove the wire of your mouse, shut down computer. Insert the wire and restart computer. This will surely work. If not then contact I'll give you other remedy.
The reason that the light does not stay on is that it only comes on to let you know that the battery is good it stays on about ten seconds, then goes into a sleep mode in order to save the battery. This happens after it does not sense motion. Since it has to transmit the motion to the receiver, this also saves battery. The only power is a small parasitic drain to the led under the bottom. The battery should last about 3 months even if you do not turn the mouse off. Of course it is better to turn the mouse off when not in use, but the small cost of a double A battery is not commensurate with the effort to remember to turn the device off.
Your mouse has probably lost its pairing. There should be a button that puts the mouse into answer mode so that when the computer looks for it, the mouse will be found and paired. All you should have to do is get the computer up and running, then turn on the mouse and push the button that makes it answer. (Should be a power switch and then another push button switch that allows the mouse to respond to search queries from the computer.) Then after a few seconds try moving the mouse to determine if it was found. If not found, then try going to devices to make sure it is searching. The mouse should show up on the list of devices.
I have the Microsoft 5000 Bluetooth mouse and it auto pairs. But if I turn it off, it will lose pairing. Sometimes I forget that I didn't turn it off and it is not clear which position of that tiny power switch is the ON, but when I push on the answer button, a light turns on to let me know that power is on. If the mouse is found or if it can't pair, the light goes off so the only way to tell that it is paired is to see it move the mouse pointer. So far it works quite well.
Check with fresh batteries.. Did you sync the mouse with transciever? Push tiny button on transceiver, (maybe hold for few seconds) light flashes quickly.. then push tiny button under the mouse, light stops flashing. Try few times, maybe otherway round. If still not work consider defective.
