You could always cover up the plastic and bottom parts (making sure not to cover up the optical lens) with electrical tape... it'd look tacky... but it might work

THAT makes a difference. But why would people even make such pads? You probably don't need a light when you doing paper work, just fireup your machine and get some sekzy red light

Do you really need to use a mousepad? I mean, I'm not using one, and its fine. No probs at all. Mouse glides smoothly over my desk.

My wife used to complain about the red light on the MS Mouse shining in her eye while trying to rest on the couch near the computer. But lights are cool! That's why I have an external modem on the desk! Cool I tell you.
