Windows 7: Wireless Laser 8000 - Mouse sleeps after a couple of seconds

Wireless Laser 8000 - Mouse sleeps after a couple of seconds

So I'm currently having an issue with my Wireless Laser 8000 (Bluetooth) and hoping someone here might have some insight on it as my googlefu is not getting any results and I really don't want to replace the mouse as I'm using it in combo with the Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000 keyboard and pretty much love this setup right now.

As of late my mouse has decided to basically throw itself in to sleep mode after about 3-5 seconds of no activity. This doesn't happen all the time but it's getting kind of insane as bringing it out of sleep causes some serious mouse lag and/or quite a bit of moving or a click to reactivate it.

Anyone with this mouse ever run in to a problem like this or in general? The keyboard isn't running in to any issues in regards to losing signal and/or sleeping and not kicking in right.

Unfortunately the Wireless Laser 8000 has been discontinued so I can't even get a proper replacement for it and have to get one of the new bluetrack mice, but none of them are rechargeable .

Any help would be appreciated.

Frist thing comes to mind for me is; have you checked the battery status to see if it needs replaced. On rechargable batteries, there is a set number of recharges it can have and they do go bad from time to time. I would start there first, replace the battery. Here's a link to the mouse if you have not already checked it out.

Yeah I've done all the usual. Replacing batteries, resetting the bluetooth connection, powering the mouse off and on, trying both software and hardware mode for the bluetooth access, with and without the intellipoint software etc.

What's odd is that there are times when it's just not acting up like that. But those times are few and far between now.

Sounds as though you have a tried mouse. . .Sorry the devil made me so that.

Have you looked at updating the software for the mouse, or maybe there is a check for that in the mouse control software alreading installed.

Looked into control panel for the mouse and could not find anything that would indicated the mouse going to sleep. So not sure why it even goes to sleep; this doesn't mean it isn't suppose on you system.

I'm assuming it installed software on the computer go to devices and look for the mouse go to settings for it maybe it has sleep mode and it set itself on 3-5 seconds on accident. You know sometimes programs have a mind of there own.
