IMPORTANT SAFETY & HEALTH INFORMATION
WARNING: Do not shine the optical sensor on
the bottom of the mouse into your eyes!
Frequent use of a computer mouse may cause physical
injury. If you feel any pain, discomfort, numbness, tingling,
aching, cramping, stiffness or swelling in your hands, wrists,
arms, shoulders, neck, back, or fingers, you should stop
using your computer mouse and seek the advice of a
qualified health professional. To lessen the chance of injury,
you should follow these general guidelines:
• Your computer keyboard should be directly in front of
you, and your computer mouse placed right next to it so
that you can use it with your elbow at your side.
• Your computer mouse s hould be close enough so that
you do not have to stretch to reach it.
• Your chair height should be adjusted so that your
computer mouse is at elbow height. Your forearm
should be parallel to the floor or slightly bent.
• Your arms, wrists, and shoulders should be relaxed, but
remember to maintain good posture and do not bend
your wrist, shrug your shoulders, hunch your back, or
twist your body.
• Hold your computer mouse with a light touch.
• Take frequent breaks and vary your tasks.

FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS
•
Atek’s optical technology records approximately 1,500
motions per second, providing smoother, more precise
operation than traditional computer mouse technology.
With an optical mouse, your cursor generally will not
stick, skip, or jump.
•
Your Super Mini™ Optical Mouse can be used on
almost any relatively flat surface. There is no need to
use a mousepad. Exceptions include glass, mirrors, and
some surfaces with complex graphic or color patterns.
•
Your Super Mini™ Optical Mouse is basically
maintenance-free. There is no rubber ball or other
moving parts to clean. However, if you do not have a
clean work surface, then dust, dirt, or crumbs may
become lodged on the edge of the optical sensor
opening on the bottom of the mouse. If that happens,
you can gently blow or brush away the offending
material with a soft cloth. However, do not insert any
objects through the opening.
•
Your Super Mini™ Optical Mouse is a two button mouse
with standard, full functioning left and right button
controls. It operates with standard Windows®, Linux®,
and Macintosh® mouse drivers.

COMPATIBILITY & SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
The Atek Super Mini™ Optical Mouse comes with a USB
connector and a USB-PS/2 adapter. You can use the Super
Mini™ Optical Mouse with Windows XP®, Windows 2000®,
Windows NT®, Windows Me®, Windows 98®, Windows
95®, Windows CE®, Macintosh® 8.6 or later, and Linux®,
operating systems, with the following limitations:
If you are using Windows NT® or Windows 95®, you must
use a PS/2 port.
If you are using Macintosh®, you must us e a USB port.
Some people prefer to use a USB port because it is “hot
pluggable”, meaning that you can plug in and unplug the
mouse regardless of whether the computer is on or off.
Other people prefer to use a PS/2 port because they are not
using the PS/2 port for any other device.
Windows ® users can program mouse button functions from
the standard mouse driver under Start | Settings | Control
Panel | Mouse.
Macintosh® users can visit the driver section of our website
at www.atek.com to download drivers for programming
mouse button functions , or you can use a third-party product
called USB Overdrive (www.usboverdrive.com).

INSTALLATION
•
If you are using the USB port, it is not necessary to turn
off your computer before plugging the mouse into the
USB port on your computer or into a USB hub. If you
are using the PS/2 port, you must first shut down your
operating system and turn off your computer before
plugging the mouse into the PS/2 port on your
computer. Also make sure you disconnect any mouse
that is currently connected to the PS/2 port or to the
serial port.
•
Locate the USB or PS/2 port on your computer. A USB
port is a flat rectangular port. A PS/2 port is a round
mini-DIN port.
•
Plug the mouse connector into the USB port on the
computer, or plug the mouse connector into the USBPS/2 adapter and then plug the adapter into the PS/2
port on the computer. Make sure the orientation of the
connector is correct – do not force the connector into
the port.
•
Please note that the Super Mini™ Optical Mouse does
not work with a serial (DB9) port and Atek does not
support the use of active signal converters such as
USB-serial converters.
6
•
If you want to use the USB connector but the USB port
on your computer is already occupied, you can use the
mouse with most USB hubs. When using a hub, if the
mouse sometimes does not work, try unplugging and
plugging back in the mouse and/or the hub.
•
Make sure your workspace is “ergonomically” correct as
per the Important Safety & Health Information section of
this User’s Manual.
•
When you install the mouse (i.e., when you plug in a
USB mouse or turn on the computer with a PS/2 mouse)
a wizard may prompt you to install a mouse driver. Your
Super Mini™ Optical Mouse does not come with a
special mouse driver but rather works with standard
Windows®, Macintosh®, and Linux® mouse drivers
usually built into your computer’s operating system.
Simply follow the prompts on your computer screen and,
if requested, select the default driver directory/folder to
install the driver. You may need to reboot your
computer after you install the operating system
driver. Macintosh® users can visit the driver section of
our website at www.atek.com to download drivers for
programming mouse button functions or can use the
third-party product called USB Overdrive (www.
usboverdrive.com).
•
Please note that it is normal for the mouse’s internal
light to brighten when you move the mouse.

TROUBLESHOOTING
If your Super Mini™ Optical Mouse does not work, it is
important to determine whether the problem is the mouse or
the computer. Always try the mouse on another computer
before concluding that the mouse is “defective”.

•
Make sure your computer ports are properly set up (for
example, not disabled). Check with your computer
system dealer or manufacturer if you need help.
Make sure you do not have any conflicts among
devices connected to and/or software installed on your
computer. Check with your computer system dealer or
manufacturer and/or software vendor if you need help.
Try rebooting your computer system after the
installation wizard finishes installing the mouse driver.
Make sure you have a compatible operating system for
the type of port you are using (USB or PS/2).
Make sure you directed the wizard to the right directory
for drivers. Call Atek if you need help with drivers.
Some early versions of Windows 98® may not work well
with some USB devices. If you are using Windows 98®
but do not have Second Edition (SE), you can try
downloading driver updates via Microsoft Windows
Update and from our website at www.atek.com.

Cursor Does Not Move At All
•
•
•
The mouse may not have been detected by your
computer (see “Mouse Not Detected” above).
The optical sensor may be blocked (see “Cursor Jumps
or Sticks” below).
You may be using the mouse on an incompatible
surface. Make sure you are not using your mouse on a
transparent surface like glass or a reflective surface like
a mirror; on a rough or porous surface that is not
smooth; or on a surface with complex graphic and color
patterns.
Cursor Jumps or Sticks
•
Dust, dirt, or crumbs may be lodged on the edge of the
optical sensor opening on the bottom of the mouse.
Simply gently blow or brush the obstructing material
away with a soft cloth. However, do not insert any
objects through the opening.
Mouse Sometimes Works and Sometimes Does Not
•
Your computer’s power management and/or sleep
settings may be affecting the way the mouse works.
Please try changing these settings to see whether that
solves the problem.
