It is unfortunate, it is a great nuisance, is a grave error in my opnion by Apple, a person like me who spend a lot of money on a new computer and I can not work 10-12 hours a day at home, because a mouse also not cheap, drives me crazy.


I have wanted to throw the Magic Mouse out of the window.


I know the problem is the bluetooth. I have the computer to within 1 meter. And I think I've tried almost everything.


The computer is under warranty, but from what I've read on the forums, no solution ... well, yes, buy a new USB mouse :-(


By the way, I have a Mac Pro Quad-Core 2012 3.2GHz / 12GB Ram. OSX 10.6.8



I wanted to record my complaint.



PD: Forgiving English Google Translate.

    Some times the fanciest product is not the best product...  And not everything Apple makes is the best product.


    I also work at home, often 12-16 hours. I found out long ago that wireless peripherals will usually let you down.


    In the end, you need to have a corded keyboard and a corded mouse for servicing anyway, so I have corded Apple extended keyboards and corded Kensington Optical Elite mice on all my machines. The mice cost me about $20 each, are programmable, and never require batteries in the middle of the night.


    If the Magic Mouse does not work correctly, return it.

    Macintosh computers use all-devices-active . When you decide to use your wireless mouse, the wired mouse and your tablet are also active. The input is the SUM of all movements from all the attached devices -- unless you physically disconnect them.

    If you're really running OS X 10.6.8 on a 2012 Mac Pro, that's an unsupported configuration.
