    I've had this Logitech wireless optical mouse for a few months now, and it's always done this, i've just never put too much into a solution:

    every so often (as frequently as every minute, and as rare as every other hour) the mouse will stop working as if it were no longer communicating with the computer. I have to unplug the usb connector, wait for the sound telling me it's been disconnected, then plug it back in.

    I've unistalled/reinstalled the software a couple of times. right now i don't have the software installed at all, since that way i have to wait less before the computer recognizes that it's unplugged, so i can plug it back in.

    I've tried other usb ports on my hub and computer, with no success there either.

    i observed, and it is not related to my computer's CPU usage displayed on my task manager, it's just complety random.

    any suggestions?

    btw- i purchased it at Wal-Mart, so i can't take it back out of the 90 day electronic return period.

    You mean its freezing?? (sorry I had to ask)

    What version of Windows are you using and what service packs have you applied. There have been problems with USB support in several versions.

    i had the same problem with a usb mouse. im not too fond of them. i bought a usb to ps/2 adapter and plugged it into the ps/2 slot for the mouse and it worked fine.

    lol, nice. i had gotten a Microsoft wireless mouse and keyboard combo a while back, and it worked great. then i had my best friend over with his pit bull one day and he got my mouse within minutes. (totally not cool) but he gave me the money and i got this one. it was $40, so i figured it would be ok, but...that's how it goes i guess.
