A funny Win7 Experience

Just after my last posting Win7 appeared to lose the mouse.  I’m using a wireless Microsoft mouse, and Win7 seemed quite happy to do so without my installing Intellipoint.  Well, after the mouse pointer refused to move, even after trying a reboot, I started to feel frustrated with Win7.  But before I went ballistic about Win7 I tried new batteries.  That did it!  Now I realize that since I didn’t have Intellipoint installed it couldn’t warn me that the mouse signal was low (as an indicator of battery failure).   So, no Win7 problem.

After this event I was happy to find that there is a Win7 version of Intellipoint available!  Now this shouldn’t happen again.
