My mouse stops moving the pointer after a few minutes of inactivity

I'm using a Gigaware wireless optical mouse on Windows XP. After the mouse is inactive for about five minutes — keyboard activity doesn't matter — moving the mouse doesn't move the mouse pointer. Only after I click or right-click a button will the mouse "wake up" and start moving the pointer.

"This is probably a ""feature"" of the wireless mouse itself.

I have a wireless laptop mouse that does the same thing - it puts itself to sleep to save battery power, and it requires a click to wake it up."
