My new wireless mouse sleeps after a few minutes to save energy. Waking it up requires clicking a button. The problem is that the mouse then sends the click to my PC. If my mouse is over a button, the button is clicked. If it is over another window, the computer changes the windows.
I often cannot locate the mouse cursor without moving it, and the mouse does not move when it is asleep, so it is difficult to avoid clicking random things. Using the right or middle mouse buttons is less problematic, but it still does things that I don't want, change windows or enter scrolling mode.
I would prefer not to send a click that activates the mouse to the PC. Does any wireless mouse work that way? Maybe the cheap one I got is poorly designed.
