okay so all of a sudden my mouse(wireless optical mouse 2.0) decides it wants to just like...randomly freeze after it sits in the same spot for more than about 5 seconds..and you have to like smack the mouse against the desk to fix it...Now i reall dont want to get a new mouse but even if I did, i have a mouse keyboard combo (Comfort Keyboard 1.0A) So would a replacement Optical 2.0 Even work with the hub?(Wireless optical desktop reciever 3.0)...But the problem with the mouse is intermittent(idk if i spelled that correctly), so Idk..anyway will microsoft RMA it? its like 2 years old but they still make my exact combo

I highly doubt it. Did you change batteries? I don't think I'd use a hub for either the mouse or keyboard

Try changing the channel of the signal between the mouse and hub if the options available, i have a switch on the side of my receiver and under the batteries on my mouse. You may have other equipment thats interfering with the signal.

Hmmmmmm interesting.....

Cold temperatures will affect electronic equipment, how cold is it that you have the air con? try upping the temp a little bit until you find a level that is still cool but wont affect your mouse.
