So like the 'auto off' or 'off while idle' feature that some mice provide, I thought of making it only powered when I'm actually using it, but to improve on the concept, instead of it waiting a predetermined amount of time while not being 'moved' to shut off, and once 'moved turning on again (like I said, with me, it'sa always getting sat on, pushed aside, sliding in towards me on the cushion when I sit, etc..)
These Pictures show the VERY SIMPLE process of my successful mod that makes it so ONLY when you have ur hand placed on the mouse like when ur using it (NOT WHEN ITS JUST MOVED)
Step 1: Aquire the Essentials for the Mod
Step 2: Open Up the Specimen
Step 3: Re-connecting The.........uh........dots...
Step 4: Reassemble & Relax

Step 5: UPDATE!
Now I am very happy to report:
MY LAST CHARGE (current one in the mouse) HAS LASTED OVER 3 DAYS AND COUNTING!!!!
(I probably just jinxed it though !.O!.)
ALSO: Here's another quick update for those interested (see pic below). I immediately took the foam piece off after I posted this (....okay, it fell off, but that's beside the point!)
and had also had this idea until something better comes to mind. I simply used some of the clear plastic packaging bubble as sort of a pressure pad (it works great, but I'm not set on this one either, because it allows the switch to be pressed if the mouse is upside down and such)
