I have a Logitech Wireless Mouse (C-BO33) that becomes non-responive after it is idle.  If I left-click the mouse becomes active again.

I have an IBM ThinkPad T42.
O/S Windows XP w/SP2
ThinkPad is connected to docking station when using wireless mouse and keyboard (no problems with keyboard)
TrackPoint is disabled in BIOS, touchpad set to disable when PS/2 Connection is detected.

the mouse works, it's just aggrevating...

sounds like your mouse is one of the newer models that conserve battery by going into a standby type mode & i believe this isn't a changeable option.

I've been using the mouse for about 6 months with no problems.

Haven't installed any new hardware or software, no driver updates.

Last windows update was three days prior to this issue, and even restored to previous point, but it made no change.

One more note, the fact that I have to left-click to wake the mouse wouldn't be an issue, except for the fact that if the cursor happens to be parked anywhere near a command button, and I click to wake, the command button is envoked (i.e. a delete icon)

This is becoming a bit frustrating, and aside from going out and purchasing a new mouse (a non-wireless mouse) do I have any other options?

have you tried uninstalling the mouse software & drivers, the rebooting & reinstalling them?

also try running sfc /scannow (from start - run)

yes, we tried uninstalling that drivers and restarting, then reloading.  Still having the same issue.  I'm begining to think it may be the battery (it's one of the rechargable mouses w/charger stand) or the charger itself.

I will try the sfc /scannow and let you know
