Presumably you realize that changing the position of the receiver while
using bad batteries would be unlikely to create much improvement.

But in reality, your question is a good question, even though I used it
as an excuse for a slightly sardonic reply ;-)
Weak batteries, weak signal?

I'm almost embarrassed. I didn't even think of that till I was typing my
message last night. Will try it today.

The very first thing I would do is move it to a USB port on the
computer. Not a port on the monitor, not a port on a USB hub, but a
port that's directly connected to the computer. Use an extension
cable, if necessary, if the sensor needs to be brought out from behind
the computer.

My cpu is on my desktop. The front facing usb ports are a mere 1.5 from the
laptop.
Hopefully cables won't be necessary.

I have a Logitech mouse & keyboard using the unifying receiver, and
after some changes to the USB setup on my computer, I had to hang the
receiver on an extension cable to get rid of major hesitations on both
mouse and keyboard.

I tried other changes; only using that cable to move the receiver into a
more line-of-sight position helped.

Batteries are fine. This has been going on since day one. Besides, if it
was a battery issue, I'm guessing the problem would be more wide spread,
not just WLM.

Good grief! What kind of newsreader are you using?

Oh - it's WLM.

Between your use of WLM and your idiosyncratic quoting style, your
replies can be very hard to follow.

In the first place, WLM doesn't quote properly[1], and in the second
place, you seem to be clipping relevant content while leaving irrelevant
content in place.

[1] WLM is famous for that. As a result of its foibles, its users take a
lot of heat in various newsgroups.

Hard to follow??? Scrolling thru a mile of replies with a growing number of
greater-than signs is hard to follow!
Anyone following this thread, knows what the topic is and has read the
replies before mine.
I rarely get called down for top posting. Most people aren't so rude.

I moved the receiver to the computer. I'm 99% sure the problem is solved!
It didn't hit me till I was typing my message that that could very well be
the problem (sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees!) :eek:
I've had other usb devices that didn't work plugged into the monitor or
keyboard, but, this one worked, just not perfectly.
So far so good :) I'm 99% sure the problem
is solved :) Thanks to those that offered relevant advice.
Much appreciated!

You have no idea. Literally.

There are conventions that people follow that make threads and replies
followable. You aren't aware of and are not using these conventions.

Lets be specific. To top post in a group where the netiquette is
clearly bottom posting might be the sign of a newbie. If not it's
ignorant or childish (such as using all lower case, or no punctuation
"to show I'm different and don't hold with all your fuddy-duddy
convention").

To use crap software where we can't tell the difference between what you
wrote and what you are quoting deserves a spell in the stocks being
pelted with offal.

Jeez, all these savvy geeks and they get uptight over

When it defeats easy communications, yes. See how neat
and tidy this response is ? I bet you can see this,
even on your mobile. The little quote bars tell you,
who said what. A feature of a decent news client.

If you filter out all the complaints about posting etiquette, it would seem enough people understood your problem to provide a
potential (if not final) solution. Imo, you achieved your objective :)

In fact, since you chose to close the loop (in other newsgroups where you asked the same question) by reporting your success
(moving the receiver to the pc's USB port in lieu of the monitor) imo you should be commended for doing so.

Yeah, a little thing like unwillingness to be clear.

I'll try to relax.

True, definitely commendable.

But she still messed up her Usenet formatting. Notice, for instance,
that her reply after the sig delimiter has now disappeared.

To Monica: I think it is really worth trying to learn this stuff.

If you do not follow standards for communication, it is you who
is being rude. Top-posting is especially deadly in a technical
newsgroup. This is a technical newsgroup. You have already been
killfiled by someone else, and I have just done the same.
