Dell WM126 wireless mouse every day using (power button)

Hello!

I have Dell WM126 wireless mouse.

I use the mouse every day. Do I need to turn off the mouse at night and turn on
its morning?

If the mouse is on, the optical sensor blinks periodically both at night and during the day.

The instructions do not say anything about whether the mouse should be turned off/on if you use it every day.

Thanks.

It really up to you. I have a Dell mouse for my Dell 3048 all in one computer, whenever I turn off computer, I turn off my mouse to save power on the two AA Duracell batteries installed in it.

Is the power button designed for such frequent use?

Yes, my apology. I was referring to the lifecycle of the two batteries (save power) that are installed in my computer mouse. I corrected my post above. When the battery run low in your mouse, it will let you know and you can purchase a new battery to be installed. Again, it's really up to you.

Looking at the Dell WM126 manual, I see the mouse use only one AA battery.
