Have you tried new batteries in the mouse?

What about the IR window for the communications between the mouse and the receiver.
Clean it if you have not done so recently.

I agree with thechas, buy a case of batteries, because you will go through them with wireless.

Most wireless mice and keyboards are capable of working on more than one channel. Theres usually a button on the mouse and the receiver that can be pressed to sync the channel. Its worth checking the batteries first as I've found this to be the main culprit for lack of connection or erratic pointer movement.
