I remember doing this with post-it notes at my last job. So awesome!

Oh? Your last job? Does that mean you got fired for covering someone's maus sensor? JK


Mouse in German. It's more fun to say.

No need for tape. Just buy a cheap one from fleabay. Mine works when it feels like and has now started to double click faster than i can. REALLY annoying when you close one tab and IT closes the rest at the same time!

if you want to be really evil, take the cover off, and just put a bit of tape over the light sensor that's used to detect the movement :) Noone will ever notice
