Have to plug into port before powering computer on. This is fine except that if computer sits idle, you have to reboot before the computer will recognize the mouse again. I have a small Targus mini-mouse and this does not happen with it.

Optical Mini Mouse


Delivery was very prompt. This mouse is so cute and works like a charm with my laptop. On the small side, but does its job without a hitch. If you have small/medium hands I recommend it for your laptop/notebook uses.
