The led on the bottom of the mouse does not lit. I believe I just got a faulty one. Can somebody point me in the right direction to have it either fixed or replaced?
firstname.lastname@example.org should help you out!
I'm just hanging out, really.

Just received my 3 mice today. Packaging is just bubble wrap, which means you can't give it away as a gift without looking really cheap.
After putting in the batteries, I was a little concerned when I couldn't see the orange indicator light that the instruction booklet was talking about, but then I noticed the blue flashing indicator light in the seam between the two mouse buttons.
I had no problems pairing it with my Win 7 laptop, just clicked on the Bluetooth icon in my task panel, selected Show Bluetooth Devices, then Add a Device, then picked the mouse. Windows took a couple of minutes to download/install the driver, and then everything was copacetic.
I cannot see any visible light coming from the LED on the bottom. I don't know if that means the mouse is using a wavelength of light that's outside the visible spectrum (IR?), but the mouse still works. Very different from my wireless mouse which emits a blue light from the LED, or other mice which uses a red LED.
Haven't noticed the mouse going to sleep, yet, but I've only been using it a few minutes, so far. The pointer tracked really fast, so I had to go into the Control Panel to adjust the speed. Don't really like how clickity the wheel sounds and feels when scrolling up; it's very audible. Not so noticeable scrolling down. And I also miss the left side button on my other wireless mouse that allows me to go back one web page.
So far it's looking like a really good deal for me. I've freed up one of my USB ports where my other wireless mouse's dongle used to reside. I'm planning on taking one of the other mice into work and leaving it there, and then I won't have to take a mouse back & forth from home. The third mouse I'll probably sell to a co-worker.
Edit: Day 2
I've noticed the mouse going to sleep, but it takes about a second for it to activate again.
Also installed the second mouse (the one I'm taking to work). Again, it installed effortlessly (I'm on a Lenovo T61 with a built-in Bluetooth adapter). It had to go through the whole process of downloading & installing a driver, again; don't remember if it was any faster than the first time.
Over 100 Woots since 2005 ... does that make me a Wootaholic?

These mice, to use the technical term, "suck".
Yeah, I got them to pair up; tit seems it takes the system a minute or two to recognize them as mice even after the drivers are installed. But the worst part is the constant freezing of them.
Yeah, I see the other complaints, too. But I wanted to add yet another data point.
Too bad, I was looking for some decent cheap bluetooth mice to use on my systems. Back to my Razers...
Hopefully if anybody else learns anything from Motorola they'll post it here.
