Windows 7: Can LED mouse shut down depending on the surface reflective texture ?

Yes!

I experienced this in a hotel one night. I was using the laptop mouse on the room desk and I of course thought it broke in transit. Started fiddling with it and was almost ready to take it apart when I randomly tried it on top of a newspaper. Works perfectly. Back on the shiny desk: 'broken' again.

Cheaper optical mice have a laser that can read up to 600 dpi (dots per inch). Mainstream mice up to 800 dpi. High performance mice have dpi at 1000 and 1200. The higher the dpi the more accurate the mouse can track on a surface, picking up even minor changes in texture. The cheaper mice cannot track well on shiny surfaces because they can't read the movement accurately.

So either buy an expensive high dpi mouse, or buy a mouse pad, or work on top of a sheet of printer paper!
Somehow the mouse gets confused and just turns off?

Maybe it's just time to replace the mouse

Well the shutting off part is a new one on me, but it could be 'feature' of that particular mouse.
Or it could be failing.

I was going mostly on this statement:
"I can use the mouse for months and then the mouse starts having weird issues.
It will start acting jerky - halts, catches up"
More than this one:
"Then it will turn off it's LED light."

Well its working perfect all day here.
I have been wondering if the cord is broke on the inside. So I pulled on it hard and the light stayed on.
I will just keep on with it as is.
Maybe I should refinish the desk with some zep floor polish from HDepot.

I found that it works great on interior woodwork on our boat, easy to paint on, easy cleanup, dries fast. Takes 2-3 coats to give the wood a durable shine finished look and it is waterproof. All that for $19 per gallon which way cheaper than Minwax.

For a test you should try using it for a while on a sheet of printer paper.
Test first, then remodel!

yes, I will eventually. But right now it is still working good just on the desk.
Maybe will work for another few months again

I took it apart to clean it, and it was very dirty inside.
Make sure you clean the inner wheel, the tiny slits.

The little wheel click spring took a while to figure out how it goes back in.
There is a little tiny hole that the square hook fits into.
The spring will be on top of the black plastic
The round spring end is what rubs on the inner wheel.

I am refinishing the desk, mouse works good so far again.
The wheel clicks nicely like new.
