    Magic Mouse - lost its magic ...
    In fact, it's lost everything! The little green light doesn't come on and it's dead. I know that it's not the batteries. I guess it's a gonner (out of warranty) but can anyone suggest anything?

    I've read another post about people preferring the trackpad but I definitely prefer the magic mouse.

    Magic mouse ...
    Well, there's a funny thing. I was just about to prise the mouse apart when I read a piece about how WIFI can affect it. I took the mouse out of the room and ... lo and behold ... the green light came blinking on again. I turned the WIFI off and on again but there was no apparent difference. Anyway, the mouse is now connected again and the WIFI is on, as before.

    The only other thing I can add is that I'd recently tried it with rechargeable batteries. These didn't last for very long (but they could be tired). However, I'd already had standard AA batteries back in for a while when this fault occurred.

    Anyway, I've got the standard batteries in and the magic mouse is again working its magic ... fingers crossed.

    Moved to a more appropriate forum.

    Your WiFi shouldn't have anything to do with your bluetooth Magic Mouse? At least it's working again.

    Thanks for your reply ...

    I read about the WIFI issue at:

    magic mouse troubles

    But, as you say, I'm just more than happy that it's working again!

    Give re-chargeables a miss, no doubt someone will strongly disagree with this. The best available batteries are Energizer Lithiums.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
