It is normal because the mouse is still picking up the "stand by" power of the motherboard.
It will very very slowly trickle away any charge you have in the laptop battery, but over such a long time you would probably not notice.
The mice on my desktop machines do the same thing, as I live in an area prone to electrical surges I shut down my machines and power strips every night and as soon as I do the laser light in the mouse goes out.
On my laptop I have a wireless optical mouse and when I finish using it, I remove the USB adapter, the USB adapter then slides into a receptical in the mouse and automatically switches the mouse off saving the mouse battery.
If it concerns you just unplug the mouse when it's not in use

I need to know how to sync the mouse to the usb..????


1. Insert the batteries into the mouse.

2. Plug the USB stick into the port in your computer.

3. Turn the mouse on (switch is on the bottom).

4. To sync the mouse with your computer, press and hold the button on the bottom left-hand side of the mouse. Then, press and hold the button on the USB stick immediately after.

Note: The button on the mouse is very hard to find. Look at the sticker that is on the bottom, and to the left of it is a very tiny button.

5. Once you press the button on the USB stick, the red light will begin blinking. Hold both buttons simultaneously until the red light begins to blink noticeably faster, then let go.

Note: This is hard to do so be patient with yourself if you can't do it on the first try.

Optical light on Mouse not working


Hello,

maybe the battery?
follow the steps below to troubleshoot the mouse
Wireless mouse does not respond (generic instructions)

Try to Resynchronize your device with the receiver(connector)
Follow these steps.:
Note When you synchronize the mouse or the keyboard with the receiver, put the device near the receiver and put other wireless keyboards and mouse at least 6 feet away.
1. Press the button on the receiver, and then verify that the light on the receiver starts to blink.
2. If a dialog box appears on the screen in several seconds, follow the instructions that appear on the screen. Otherwise, go to the next step.
2. Press and release the Connect Channel button on the bottom of the mouse or the keyboard.
3. Check the green light on the receiver. A steady green light means the synchronization was successful. If the problem persists, try steps 1 through 3 again.
For the Wireless Notebook mouse: This issue can occur if the micro-switch on the bottom of the mouse is not released. Use a pin or a pen to try to release the button if it is depressed.
or
Try different port and restart your computer.
or
Reinsert the batteries or install fresh batteries
If you have the possibility check whether the problem is because of your computer or the device, try the mouse or the keyboard on a different computer.

Keyboard and mouse not working


Make sure you have fresh batteries...usually this is how to set up a wireless keyboard and mouse. Insert the reciever in the USB and hit the link button normally located as a recessed button on the bottom, a light will blink....On the keyboard press the button as before located as a recessed button on the bottom. Once linked the reciever light should stop blinking...do the same with the mouse.
