A reset switch can be accessed through the battery compartment at the left rear. if access is difficult, the unit's cover can be removed by removing three screws.

Mouse idles, takes a full second to "wake up."

Hi. Normally gaming mouses can come with some software that will help fix that issue and make it more comfortable to use but as we all know this is not a gaming mouse. It sounds like the optical sensor ( bottom of the mouse) is either dirty or may just be bad. I have looked up the mouse and overall it has a lot of bad reviews. A lot say the mouse dies in 1 month. My best suggestion is to return it if you can and get a better one.

Some ideas - ( around your budget )

Hope this helps. let me know what happens!

GE Optical cordless mouse will not work. Have shut down computer, reconnected the USB to CPU (Receiver), pushed button on mouse. Red light blinks, but will not connect. What else can I do? Have lost...

I have a Logitech cordless mouse but had a problem recently. It fell on the ground and the batteries fell out. Put them back in, the mouse came back on but didn't work. Pushed the button on the mouse several times, no luck. The light at the receiver was always blinking whenever I pushed the button on the mouse, so I assumed that should work. After a few tries, I ended up pushing the button at the receiver and low and behold, the mouse was working again.
Have been using this mouse for years, had that problem only one.

Hope it helps.

HP Wireless Optical Mouse Fading

Ref wireless mouse. Not sure if you have a solution yet but it seems there could be 2 sources to the problem. First a weak or decaying laser. Second, something you have introduced recently that could interfere with the wireless signal eg mobile phone, another wireless device, cordless phone, telephone wires close to receiver or maybe something else. Not sure what you do if the laser is failing other than clean the lens. You might have to get it checked or try a friends mouse to see if it is better. There s also a setting than can change the sensitivity of the mouse. Have you looked at those settings.
