    This is a tip for anyone using a battery powered optical mouse.
    When the computer is not in use, turn the mouse upside down --this stops the mouse transmitting and lengthens the life of the battery.

    how does that work? Do they not have an on/off switch, that would be something to add.

    I have 2 of those mouses to turn upside down but have you checked to see if the tip works? The light still blinks regardless!
