I tried swapping the mouse with an identical new mouse.
The new mouse has been working for the entire day with no problem. The other mouse never lastest this long before shutting down.
I'll give it another day before I feel completely confident, but I think it was a bad cable (or mouse).
Thanks for your help.
: Intel i440BX chipset ( generally good usb support ) in this Portege. Try a bios update. Did Windows install ACPI support(check the device manager=> system devices)?
: : OOPS! Sorry. It's the 3110CT NOT the 3840CT (got the number confused with a Genicom printer, heh!)
: : Thanks.
: : : Which Portege model is it?
: : : Jason
: : : : Toshiba Portege laptop, Win 98 SE, latest Intellimouse drivers, brand new USB Intellimouse Optical.
: : : : The light(s) on the mouse shut down like clockwork, even if the mouse is in use. Only rebooting restores operation.
: : : : I tried altering the BIOS legacy USB setting, and shut off certain power save functions (this is a laptop though - APM is needed) - no luck.
: : : : Any ideas? I scoured the web and only found obscure references to the light(s) shutting down in the event of a crash. No crashes here.
: : : : Thanks!
