    the GREEN button at the bottom of the mouse is for connecting the mouse with the receiver.the only way to switch off the mouse is to manually remove the batteries.
    the batteries sud last for bout 3 months.
    even i've used the Logitech EX-90 and at present i'm using a MS wireless kbd and mouse.even i've to remove the mouse batt to save batt pwr.

    As far as i know , those have a built in timer to switch off power if the kb/ms is inactive for a certain amount of time ... atleast the one's i've used and the one i'm using does ... i never turn off anything besides my pc ....

    As for battery , keyboard one should run over 6 months easy .. mine rusn even longer ... and for mouse it depends on how much u use it .. while gaming , running on two AA batteries , it goes to just over a week , while with less of gaming , the max i hit was just under a month

    Overall it actually depends on the type of combo ur using , its build and the quality ..

    Right Shantanu mine too the latest one might be having the same.
    Anyways even it is not there then nothing to worry as the device is designed in such a way that when the mouce or keyboard is not in use then it goes in a sleep mode and consumes almost negligible power because their design compells them to do so.
    so nothing to worry much...!

    Dont use normal batteries for ur wireless keyboard/mouse. They wont last very long especially the batteries for ur mouse. Even if u use alkaline batteries, they'll still be a big drain on ur pocket for continuous use.

    Get some good NiMH batteries of atleast 2000 mAh capacity or more. Try to get Sanyo or Sony or some good brand and also a fast charger for it. Then u wont have to worry abt ur batteries running out.

    Usually u can get Nimh batteries at shops which sell digital cameras and accessories. But it'll usually be somewhat costly at those places.Or u can pick them up at shops which sell electronic components.

    Not sure abt the latest prices. Batteries I think cost around Rs 100-150 per piece.

    I bought mine more than a year back. I bought the "Eveready" model (4x 2100mAH batteries + fast charger) which is available in most supermarkets. Cost me around Rs 900 I think.

    The original batteries that came with the mouse lasted longer.

    ^^ donot use zinc carbon batteries.. they are useless..

    use Alkaline batteries like Duracell..
    or better get a set of rechargable batteries.. usually rechargable batteries comes in 600 mAH .. try getting higher ones.. I have 1600 mAH batteries. it has more capacity

    I would like to know whether AAA batteries -- that the mice take usually -- is available in 1600mAH capacities. I think they max out at 900mAH and even these are difficult to find. What one usually gets is 600mAH. Please correct me if I am wrong.
    AA batteries are available upto 2500mAH capacity but only the Keyboards usually take it.

    eeep I have the same problem (with same logitech cordless combi. mine is EX110), there is no way you can turn the power off for Mouse unless you take out the Batteries. Mine goes out within 20-30 days. I posted a small note for the same problem for all the people out there....check it out...

    You Keybord will only use power when you press a key and your mouse will go into a sleep mode after about 20 min. The batteries for the mouse last for up to 30 to 60 days. Your keybord's batteries will last for up to 240 days. Your mouse uses the most power whene you move it.

    I just use rechargeable for my MS Wireless Combo,

    removing the batteries is not a good option man, you cant expect to be doing this 2-3 times a day
