Question about HP Wireless Optical Mouse
I have an HP wireless optical mouse and I get these annoying replace battery messages long before the batteries need replaced. Does anyone know where I look to turn this notification off????
It's a bit iffy, but if you go into the task manager (press ctrl-shift-esc) and look at the list of processes there will be one running called kbd.exe. This is HP's keyboard and mouse driver which, as far as I can tell, does very little but cause a world of pain. If you end the process (select kbd.exe from the list and hit the end process button at the bottom and confirm you want to when prompted) the warning disappears. Nothing else untoward seems to happen.

I had the same issue. I noticed in the device manager that I had two HID complient mice. I disabled the second one and the pop-up message stopped. Hopefully this solves my issue indefinately. Note that if you disable the wrong one, you'll lose your mouse, so be prepared to be able to re-enable via the keyboard (you can use the context menu key located between the right window and control keys)

For some unexplicable reason, HP packages this mouse with low mAh rated batteries. Use 2500 mAh NiMH batteries and most charging and battery problems go away. ATTENTION, use only NiMH batteries.

Under Device Manager>Mice>HID compliant Mouse>Driver tab>Update Driver... I updated both drivers and it stopped for now.

Cutting down on the number of wires
that must be tolerated in a work station adds to maneuverability and
ease of location. For all their convenience, though, wireless
accessories bring with them a number of issues not present in their
wired counterparts, most significantly battery change.
