    Yep. Recommend trying another USB port, or if you haven't, use the USB 3.0 fixes from MultiBeast for 7/8/9 series boards.

    I have a bluetooth 4.0 running perfectly turning on/off, but after the 10.11.4 upgrade, my magic mouse lost some gestures, like second-click, even enable on system preference the click doesn't work.

    I've been searching and I found out that I don't have this plist in /Library/Preferences

    com.apple.AppleMultitouchTrackpad.plist
    com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.trackpad.plist
    com.apple.preference.trackpad.plist
    com.apple.driver.AppleBluetoothMultitouch.mouse.plist
    com.apple.driver.AppleHIDMouse.plist

    Is possible that the missing of these files may be resulting on magic mouse malfunction? If it is so, can someone send me these files?

    I think this is the nail on the head. There seems to be some sort of interference from the usb plugs on my computer to the mouse. I have no idea what but I am always getting lag issues especially when trying to drag stuff. Anyway. I tried the plug on the apple keyboard and I seem to be experiencing a massive improvement!

    I recently purchased first gen magic mouse and keyboard as they are on discount due to the newer versions being out.

    The keyboard works. The mouse, not such.

    I tested the mouse with my Macbook qnd it works great.

    It connected the first time and worked for a few minutes but that was it. The mouse now connects but fails to work correctly now.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    ________________________________

    In my case I had lag problems using my Apple Magic Bluetooth Mouse on my hackintosh. The solution that solved my problem was to unplug the bluetooth dongle from behind the computer and plug it into the right side of the Apple USB keyboard (which has a USB port on each side and is close to the mouse). For me it was enough to solve my lag problem. The conclusion I got was that if you leave the dongle as close to your mouse as possible you will avoid lag. I hope I help.
