Default Wireless Mouse

Since buying my laptop, I've tried at least 5 different bluetooth mice. All of them have problems loosing the connection. Some would stop working for days. I finally found one that is fairly reliable. A Razer Pro Click. At least when its connection goes bad, I can usually get it back. I tell Windows 7 to log me off or change users. And as soon as I get to the resulting screen, the mouse is working again. So I just log in again. Which seems to say this is a software problem, not a hardware problem.

Anyway, I've been grumbling "why can't I just have a wifi mouse." So I decided to search. And there is one, from HP. So today I installed it, which requires installing its own software. So far so good. But then again, my other mice worked okay at first.

Anyone else have this much trouble with bluetooth mice? Also wondering if anyone else is using a wifi mouse.
