I've got one of these MS USB wired mice/mouse, and in the last few days, it keeps on shutting off (the light goes off, and if I have the headphones on, I can hear the disconnect sound).
It was fine before Monday this week.
I've gone into Device manager and unticked under the power management tab under this mouse, it makes no diff. I've deleted the mouse and its hub, it made no diff.
I have a feeling its stuffed somewhere, as it turns off on one of the USB ports on the back of the case, and one of the ports on the front.
I tried the other mouse here (from the other PC). It worked fine.
Everything else seems to work ok (the Ipods, and printer, which are USB as well). The cable to the mouse looks fine to me, and it doesnt look like anything is wrong on the inside of the mouse. Do these things have a lifespan or something?
The keyboard is also USB, so I dont think the USB ports on this thing are dying. Otherwise, this keyboard (its a light up one), would die constantly.
And I wouldnt be typing this.
Does it sound like the mouse is ready to die?
