Any one ever have problems with these mouses.  The seam to work fine for a while but after some point they stop working.  I find if they are unplugged and plugged back in they work.   They came with some the gateway 4610's that we have.  I can't seam to find a driver.  Any ideas what might be going on? No unknown hardware is listed in the device manager. So ever thing looks good there.  

This is what they look like.

Try the latest Intellimouse driver from Microsoft. In Device manager, Mice and other pointing devices, untick allow the pc to turn off this device to save power.

I have not.  They had that issue when we got them they came with some computers we bought from gateway.   it's kind of odd that they work for a while then quite working till you unhook them and hook them back up.  I will give the Intellimouse drivers a shot.

Good luck. I made a mistake. The power off tick Is in the mouse properties in Vista not XP. You would have to go deeper to the USB root hubs (Properties - Power Management) and untick there.
