no dongle option

Conclusion: who sells a bluetooth mouse without a bluetooth dongle option? it seems canon. i even have a bluetooth computer and it is sporadic at best to link. how would you like working on files and your mouse freezes with no way to link back up since it's frozen. if you dont offer a dongkle option tghen stop selling these.
Conclusion: I tried it on Windows 7 pro SP1, 64 Bit As others have said, when it goes dormant, it no longer responds. Double left click does not reactivate. Switching on and off does not reconnect. Troubleshooting does not find any issues and selecting properties states no mouse was found. Without deleting the device from Bluetooth devices and adding it again, it will not function. It is essentially a paperweight that looks like a mouse.
Pros: works well when connected, switching between calc and keypad is well thought, accurate movement and glides well
Cons: it's essentially a paperweight it's so useless, fails bluetooth connectivity miserably, out of the box it is over responsive
Conclusion: I've been trying to connect the mouse for most of the morning to my Win7 laptop. The computer shows that the mouse is connected but cannon populate any of the device info including the MAC address. The pointer does not work and the mouse keep flashing the BT icon like its still looking for the computer. Also the button to switch from calculator to KeyPad does nothing. Its just a way over priced calculator or a Tecky paper weight.
Pros: it was a nice idea
Cons: will not connect to computer, calc/kp button does not work, feels very cheaply made
Conclusion: This to correct the criticism of Bluetooth in earlier reviews. The mouse does go dormant when left unused for a while. Just click the left button twice and it becomes active. The mouse speed had to be slowed considerably for comfort.
Summary: Usually people do not read a Manuals ;-) That why "Connection failed" after few hours. The mouse has sleep mode after some inactive minutes to save battery energy. Any user suppose to just click on the "Slipping Mouse" (or "the Mouse after any pairing") and wait a second then all problems are solved. The best combo Bluetooth device!! A++. You do not need any USB adapter with the World Standard Bluetooth. Thanks (and G.B.) to IEEE Engineers!! [...] .
