Two complete new PCs with XP PRO SP3 and Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 1000 keyboard/mouse set. We get an error that the signal is low and you should change the batteries.

We have changed this 3 times with high quality batteries. Yet it pops up 3-4 times a day. The receiver is 30cm away. We tried multiple positions, different angles and changing the batteries. Still the popup keeps coming up. Any solutions? I'm suspecting it's a SP3 issue?!

how far are you using the mouse I have noticed that the mouse and keyboard at too far a distance causes this. Just curious.....

30-50 centimetres apart. The distance is reasonable, not too close and not too far. The alert pops up on both machines. Tried updating the intelli software, still no go.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

At the end we exchanged the keyboard/mouse with a 3000 series. So far no complaints.
