Same reason why I prefer corded mouse to cordless. And never have to worry about running outta bettery in the middle of gaming, replacing dead batteries... and not to mention it's not totally cordless as there's still wires going to the charging station/receiver.

Same problem here. Grab the mouse and with your 2 thumbs, press as hard on the affected button as you can. Always fixes it for me, I tend to not see the problem again for a while.

If that happened, maybe you should of pressed more near the wheel arrows.

And here I thought these mice were indestructible, I was unable to ever break mine doing that. What you're wanting to do is apply some pressure to the microswitch so its innards tighten itself again. What happens is that the contacts become "dirty" with all the excessive clicks.

Right now it happens about once or twice a day, with my first G7 it got to a point that it would happen 5-10 times in an hour.

But I’m certain that it will slowly become more frequent.
