I have the older wireless mouse and recently it has been losing the connection frequently.

At first I thought it was something mechanically wrong with the mouse -- I would vigorously rub the "ball" and eventually it would start working again.

Now I realize that it is the actual signal that seems to be fading and coming back based on nothing that I am doing -- It will drop the signal and then start working again after a short period of time (less than a minute).

I know this because I installed the wired mouse and start using it when the wireless fails and then go back to the wireless when it spontaneously works again.

Is it the failing of the mouse internally to send a signal or is it some glitch in my software receiving the signal?
