Freezes for several seconds randomly every few minutes
31 December 2014
Summary: I was trying to use this mouse with a Windows 8.1 computer. HP doesn't have a mouse-specific driver on their website to download. This mouse randomly froze every few minutes and it was incredibly frustrating!! I tried to re-pair the device to fix it, changed the batteries (even though I tested them and they were good), turned the device off/on to reset, checked the power settings for the device in windows, made sure my bluetooth adapter was updated, verified that I had...
Summary: I haven't had much luck with Bluetooth. I am not sure if it is the keyboard and/or mouse that go to sleep when not used, but when you are ready to type, you have to hit a non-character key to wake it up, otherwise you miss the first 1 or 2 characters. Same with mouse; you must wiggle it to wake it up, then move cursor to the target. You get much better response with wireless instead of Bluetooth.
Summary: Warning to Mac users. I'm an IT guy at an entirely Mac organization. We've found that if more than one Mac nearby running 10.9 is paired to a HP x4000b, it tends to cause the Macs to freeze at sleep or screensaver. We've been able to reproduce this behavior consistently. Other bluetooth mice don't have this problem. However, in situations where there is only one Mac and only one x4000b nearby, we've found the mouse performs as expected.
Summary: I originally purchased the mouse for my Samsung tablet but use it more for my Windows 8.1 touch screen laptop more then anything else. I have never had any optical mouse work on ANY SURFACE like this moues does. I have not turned the power off - on button off since I've had it and both AA battery (included with the mouse) are still at 1.56 volts when I checked them last night.
Summary: Actually I do like this mouse...it handles wonderful...comfortable in the hand...BUT..I wont recommend it because the batteries are next to impossible to replace..In order for me to change mine...I had to break a piece of plastic our of the center...now it probably wont work at all...my luck...
