Meaning of slow red pulse in W/less Laser Mouse 8000??

    As with most of Microsoft's hardware, there never is any literature that
    fully explains everything. I just bought this as part of Entertainment
    Desktop 8000 bundle.
    The mouse uses one rechargeable Energizer battery. If I put the mouse on
    the recharger it slowly flashes green - charging, which is OK. Then it will
    start rapidly flashing red, which I believe means fully charged.
    Within minutes of removing it from the charger it starts slow red flashing,
    which I take as "battery needs charging" - what gives with this stupid
    thing? It's actually fully charged because I've taken it out and charged on
    my own battery charger.

    Hi,

    I believe that periodic flashing indicates that it is communicating or
    maintaining contact with the wireless reciever.

    I know this is an old thread, but when my mouse is fully charged, it
    shows a solid green light. It recently started quickly flashing red
    which led me here. My investigation seems to indicate that the quick
    flashing red means the mouse cannot find the bluetooth connection it had
    (as I had disconnected my bluetooth adapter to use another mouse). After
    plugging the adapter back in and powering off (then back on) the mouse,
    I again received a green light from the mouse.

    I hope this helps!

  5. Somehow I doubt that this is the full explanation of what the Microsoft Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 is doing.
    The one here now regularly works with Windows 7 but it flashes red constantly. Only occasionally does it behave, going green, charges and making a connection, then light fading out - as it should. When wired.
    The battery's fine, because it can work for some days with a wireless connection. It just doesn't want to work going green then quiescent.
    What's the driver doing?
