    Wow! Why waste perfectly good tape. Just take the stupid ball out. Of corse, the tape would come in handy for a laser mouse! But why not just go into control panel and disable the mouse if your really wanting a discrete way of doing something cool like this. Tisk Tisk. So Juvenile.

    well it would be obvious because the control panel would be up, also, that is an optical mouse in the pic, lastly, unplugging the mouse would be just as good

    Why leave the control panel up? Keyboard navigation still works today! ALT-F4 closes the current window. :-)

    One of the best office pranks.... ever! I used a post-it note with excellent results. One guy shut down his computer, checked all the wires, called in IT and still couldn't figure it out. While he was away, I removed the post-it note and when he returned it was like nothing happened... except that he lost about 20 minutes of work. Oops.

    its is good, but as far as i know anybody would just go and look at the bottom of the mouse or at the plug. Maybe you guys should think of something like uninstalling the mouse driver or something like that.

    Someone already came up with this but i think the best idea is to unplug the mouse just a little so when they look they think it is plugged in

    This is good but the buddy can just look under his mouse and found it!
    So you can do this joke but better (funnyer) will be to unplug mouse.
    (Best: unplug and tape the mouse: when the buddy take the tape off, then he will think that mouse is now OK but isn't!)

     They can, true, but they most likely won't. If you do this in a school/library type setting, even if they see it (I did this to one in the school library, I was one comp over watching) they will think it's because there's a problem etc. with it.

    Unplugged mice are usually the first thing people look for in my experience.

    FYI, this works equally well with a post-it note, and it's more easily removed. :)

    I don't know for u, but whenever I go to computer that's not mine (at school etc), I lift the mouse and look if the led if lit, and I would surely see a piece of tape like yours
