Hi There,

I have this wireless mouse, it's full name is "Microsoft Standard Wireless Optical Mouse". And ususally when I'm running full screen applications e.g. games, it gives me a false alarm of the battery being low(i know it's false because in the control panel under mouse option the battery level is showen high and also the battery is new). This makes the CPU usage go up almost 100% while usually it's on the average of 25% even if there's high graphic games running on the back. This "pop-up" also makes my computer restart sometimes unwantedly. So I was wondering if you could help me stop this.

My computers's specs are as follows:
AMD Athlon 64 Proccessor 3500+ (2.21 GHz)
1.00 GB RAM
Windows xp proffesional service pack 2
MSI NX6600 (256mb)

Thnaks in advance.

Nope, I have no control over the monitoring, In the mouse setting I can only watch the status.
