Question about Dell Computers & Internet
Closing the lid of most laptops sends a signal to put the machine in hibernate or sleep mode. You can either leave the lid open or change the power savings settings. In Win 7, this is in the Control Panel but can also be reached from the advanced power savings settings from the Screen Saver. Click on the desktop (anywhere without an icon or running program) and select Personalize. Click on the Screen Saver and then Change Power Settings. Then Change Plan Settings (look for the line Advanced Plan Settings and the section marked Power Button and Lid).
I don't know enough to help you with the mouse problem. I'd check the batteries for the mouse first. Then ask Dell.
I wish that I could be of more help.
