Can a Mirosoft USB port wirless mouse work on a MBP?
I have a 3 yr old MacBookPro, 15 inch, with software updated up to Lion - but not that OS. My apple mouse I got when I got the laptop died. I have a Microsoft wireless mouse that works via plugging it into a USB port. Can I make this mouse work on my MBP? If so, how do I set it up. When I plug the part into the USB port on my MBP the green diode on it glows steadily! Thanks,

use the button on your mouse and the usb one to sync should work.

You shouldn't have to do anything to make the mouse work. I plugged my Microsoft wireless mouse when I first got this MBP and it was automatically and almost instantly available to use. I did wind up getting an Apple Magic Mouse because there would be a lot of lag when using the Microsoft Mouse.

It can run with no problem I was troubleshooting a friends Windows unit because he had a problem with the mouse. I tried it on my Mac and it worked fine. It turned out that he had a bad USB input on his machine.
