Unforch, its intermittent, and hasn't done it since the early evening hours
yesterday. As an experiment, I just moved another wireless M$ mouse that
normally sits on a corner of the same mousepad, one thats normally used
with my lappy, to a point a couple of feet away. Which if its crosstalk
in the base station, won't help as the base station is still about 4 feet
from both mice. I probably should take the battery out of it when the
lappy isn't running. M$ really should have put a power switch on a mouse
they know very well is going to be used on a lappy cause when you toss it
in the bag with the rest of the detrius of a laptop, it can't find a pad
surface and goes blinking crazy till you take the *&^$ battery out.

So I suspect I'm barking up the wrong tree after all... Sorry.

Cheers, Gene
