I installed a Microsoft Wireless Optical Notebook Mouse 4000, replacing the Targus Wireless Notebook Mouse I had been using. I have booted from the Acronis Rescue CD many times with the Targus mouse installed and have never had a problem using that mouse with the standalone TrueImage interface. Some time after installing the new mouse I tried booting from the Rescue CD. I got to the loader menu and selected Full. Then after a few seconds the screen went blank and there was no further activity frm the CD drive or the hard drive. I removed the wireless sender from its USB slot and rebooted from the rescue CD, and this time when I selected Full from the loader menu I got the "Locading..." message and the standalone TrueImage came up. I have read numerous postings about mice not working in the standalone interface, but this problem is actually worse, since the standalone program won't even come up with the mouse installed.
