Can I click directly to the "Home" screen on Android 2.3 on a bluetooth mouse


I have a samsung phone that I have attached a bluetooth mouse to.  I have determined that the right mouse click is the "back" button.  I would like to know if there is a way to click once and be directed back to the Home screen, acting just like the Home button on the device itself, instead of clicking the right mouse button 4,5,6,7 times to get there.  Is there somewhere on the screen that I can click that will redirect the screen home?

If it is a 3-button mouse, the middle mouse works like the home key.

If the mouse has a scroll wheel, generally the scroll wheel doubles as a button too, so you can try pressing it.

I have a $12 bluetooth (2 button + clickable scroll wheel) mouse I got from Deal Extreme that has all these features.

The mouse solution did not work.  I did just end up buying a cheap small bluetooth keyboard that I could set close to my right hand.  It has a home button that I use.  Its not as convenient as having it on the mouse but it works well enough since I hit it several times a day.  This means I don't have to pick up my phone from its dock every time I need to get back "Home".
