The mouse gets seriously poor reviews on Newegg.com. People report it is cheaply made and tends to stop working.

SOURCE: Microsoft wireless notebook optical mouse 1023 - not working!

If you know that the battery is good then try this next. There is a VERY tiny shark-fin shaped spring-loaded button on the bottom of the mouse that is pressed in, when you insert the receiver, while the mouse is not in use, that turns off the mouse to save the batteries. If you haven't used the mouse in a while, it can get stuck in the in position, so that when you pull out the receiver, it doesn't spring out and turn the mouse on (indicated by the red light on the bottom). If you notice that the light isn't coming on. Just try manually pushing in the little shark-fin thing a couple times to make it spring back out. After a couple times, you should be able to get it unstuck and the red light should come on.

SOURCE: Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard

Normal 0 Press the Receiver button (and the lights will start flashing.
Then if the Keyboard isn't working, press the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the board to connect the keyboard to the receiver.

If the MOUSE isn’t working, push the small RESET/CONNECT button on the back of the mouse to connect to the receiver. Then they should work okay.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi again,

Appreciate the direct "Ask Me" and the repeat use of FixYa.

Interesting concern, should be pretty straightforward. Anyways, pls try to:

  • update/re-install the driver from Microsoft Download page;
  • alternately, disable the "Allow the computer to turn off..." in the Power Management tab of the USB Root Hub Properties in your Device Manager.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you again for using FixYa.

How do I turn the mouse off/on?


Hi Charles,
According to:
Product Description Color: Brown
The Maxell 2.4 GHz Wireless Safari Mini Optical Mice have more than cool looks. Since they are 2.4 GHz wireless optical you'll notice less signal loss. They also have 3 key buttons and a scroll wheel so you can speed through your computer programs. The Maxell mice are wireless so you don't need to worry about wires getting in the way. They can detect a computer up to 32 feet away. These are compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP, 2000, ME, Mac OS 10.0 or above. Requires one AAA battery.

- So i do believe there is no on an off button on that mouse as I read on this site that says: "This one doesn't have an on/of switch, so in order to turn it off you have to disconnect the USB every time and store it underneath the mouse (annoying) . also, if it's idle for a minute (maybe less) the mouse goes in sleep mode and you have to disconnect the USB to wake it back up (super annoying) . The mouse works fine, it just gets old having to take it in and out all the time".
