I bought this zelotes wireless 2.4ghz mouse on ebay model is f-14

Pointer movement is disabled on the screen if I don't use the mouse for 30 seconds. Takes 1/2 second of hand to mouse movement to continue pointer movement on the screen but it doesn't require me to click only move it to keep using the mouse. This is NOT the more common disconection after 5-10 minutes of inactivity where I have to click once to reconnect which happens too and is fine that's not what I'm complaining, this is another form of disconnection that I think is normal from this brand and model but i don't like it.
Is probably some "power saving feature or timeout feature" but I can't find where on settings in windows to change/disable this so I can correct it.

If someone needs website info etc this is from zelotes tech support which didn't solve the problem.

I also downloaded its code software but it feels useless for changing hardware settings. Is not a battery issue I changed them to new duracell and panasonic batteries and didn't fix this.

You likely can't change it, this is what you get when you buy cheap Chinese junk.
Is not cheap junk is an advanced micro chip with great power saving abilitis. Plus it looks cool, the reason it disconnects doesn't relate to the price, and I paid 20$ for it is not cheap. I'm a smart ass for buying good cheap chinese products.

No, because it doesn't work.

I bought my Logitech mouse 10 years ago for $20, never had a hiccup with that one.

The one I had before was some unknown brand, like yours, and it had issues just like yours, and it ended up in the closet very quickly.
But hey, it was cheap. :rolleyes:

If it is loose, tighten it up. :p

Being serious, I would reach out to the company and see if that is normal or what you may be missing.

yes I think is normal and intentional to save me bateri. I learned so far I can't do anything about it as is in the firmware and would take some reverse circuiting including reprograming the chip, something like that. Unless an app on windows can wake the mouse before 30 seconds but I don't know how yet.
