If your wireless mouse feels like it's constantly running out of juice, weblog Digital Inspiration has some tips for keeping it alive as long as possible. One of the more interesting tips? Use a lightly coloured mouse pad.

The tip actually comes directly from Logitech, who says that dark, rough, or dull surfaces can make your mouse sensor work harder. Since the sensor is the thing that draws the most power, helping it out with a reflective, lightly coloured surface can help boost its battery life.
Digital Inspiration also notes that if you're desperate for battery power, you can create a simple reminder to turn off your mouse every time you shut down your computer, either through Windows' Task Scheduler or by changing your shutdown sound to a verbal reminder.
