    I haven't tried that, but I've used an IO BT adapter and other products from them without issue.

    I am in the same boat as gauntlet and basically need a large sized BT mouse. The Logitec models are too small and with all the web design I do, finger cramps come often. MS's BT mouse is the right size and weight, but I have concerns about just about BT issues that I have heard with it. The newer one is supposed to be better, but who wants to pay that much for a possible paper weight.

    I also would like some BT game controllers if someone out there (MS and Logitech) are listening.

    Has anyone tried this model

    Anycom Inc CC3141 Anycom BTM-100 Bluetooth Mobile Mouse with usb Charge

    It is a little bigger then the iogear model and it also comes with a USB cable to charge the AA batteries when needed.

    I just bought the microsoft bluetooth mouse, and it works well with the built in bluetooth of my HP notebook without the need the software that comes with it. I did not want to install as i worry of possible conflicts between the internal and external bluetooth.

    However, i wish to configure the mouse buttons ... so tried to install the software, until the part where it asked me to put in the usb bluetooth receiver where i quit the installation.

    Now the microsoft mouse software seems to installed and running but any changes to the mouse button configuration does not take effect.

    Any suggestion? I would probably need to run the complete installation with the external bluetooth receiver and see if it works but somehow i feel the "risks".

    I've been using my Logitech MX900 for my notebook, although I originally bought it for my desktop.

    I too am waiting for a full size bluetooth mouse w/ forward and back buttons and an on/off switch. Hopefully Logitech or MS will release one soon once they realize the demand for this feature.

    I have found a work-around for using the MX900 for my laptop on a regular basis. I purchased 4 energizer 2500mAh NIMH batteries with a 30 minute quick charger. These batteries exceed the 1800mAh rating of the oem batteries that come with the MX900 and I find that the batteries last for at least 3 days with regular use without removing the batteries during transport. If the batteries do die, I just pop in the spare Energizer batteries and I'm good to go for another 3 days while recharging it using the desktop base station when I get back home or using the Energizer charger at my hotel room. It's not a perfect solution, but until MS or Logitech release a mouse with an on/off switch, I've found it to be a good compromise.

    Any rec. for a small, portable (light weight) bluetooth mouse. I am getting the s7020 when it comes out, and that has bluetooth built in. I am looking for the opposite of most of you- small and light; an on/off switch or automatic off is imp. too, and I want something that doesn't require the base. Thanks for any input.
