After installing Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), the Might Mouse BT used with a MacBook 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo only functions as a pointer but it cannot select with a click .Battery power is okay. The Mighty Mouse was fully functinal with Mac OS 10.6.8 on the same MacBook.

    Replaced the batteries with fully charged rechargable batteries. The Might Mouse and now it is fully functional.

     

    My Theory

    Rechargable batteries can be a problem with a Mighty Mouse.

    Although the battery level was at 40%, the Mighty Mouse started to loose some of its functionality. If you choose to use rechargable batteries, as I encourage you to do, replace them before the battery level drops below 50%.

    It is hard to see why using rechargeable batteries should pose a problem. And replacing them before the charge level drops below 50%? Ludicrous.

     

    Anyway, I have the same problem with the mighty mouse (Apple's first servicable mouse), using normal batteries, after upgrading to Lion. No problems with either left or right clicks under Snow Leopard. Most annoying.

     

    Advice welcome.

    Same problem - Mighty mouse on MBP lion 10.7.2. It moves but cannot click. It also doesnt let you click with the trackpad. One has to switch off the mighty mouse. USB mice are fine that I've tried. I was wondering if it was a faulty mighty mouse.

    my Might Mouse after upgrading from Tiger to Snow Leopard, has "lost" right click functionality(its certainly not working now).. is the consensus that this is a low battery problem? (why would that be the cause?)
