Fix for poorly performing Magic Mouse on some Mac Pros
Authored by: aubreyapple on May 20, '10 09:28:27AM

I think that this hint does not apply to the early 2009 nehalem MacPro. I actually hope I am wrong, so I can improve things although my Magic Mouse is not all that bad. I also read that a solution is to remove the battery cover from the Magic Mouse. I have no way of telling the signal strength change as I cannot find any applications to measure Bluetooth signal strength, so I do not know if it is really useful or not.

I have a 2009 Mac Pro (where supposedly switching the antennas doesn't work). I can say that removing the battery plate improves performance, but still the mouse is not very usable. I have my MP on the floor to the left of my desk (which is metal and wood). The MP is about 1.5 meters from the mouse. If I move the mouse to the left of my keyboard, the mouse works fine. Too bad I'm not a lefty.
