    1. Red lights stay on when computer is off...unless I unplug or turn off power in back on PSU. (My friend Jbray, across the street has the same mouse and his turns off at normal shutdown.)

    2. Pointers are appearing in programs when they are not supposed to(in some games and screen savers).

    I had the same issue with my optical mouse. It was an USB connector that came with a ps2 adapter. When I used the ps2 adapter the light stayed on after shutdown, when I use the USB, it shuts off.

    The light thing doesn't bother me as much as the pointer problem...any help with that...maybe this should have been posted in Win 98 section?

    sorry, not sure about the pointer thing. Just wanted to throw in my two cents about why the light stayed on when the puter is shutdown.

    That may not be my problem, as mine is hooked up the same way as my buddy and his turns off...thanks anyway, though!
