Mouse system controller

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I have this useless wireless mouse that I want to mod so a piece of program and pick up a leftclick and put the system in "lock mode" and another button to shut it down, idk yet, but I was looking for someone who could program so it picks up the device and recognizes the click but disables it from clicking and so on.

Or

Could I make it so that when the mouse base recieves a signal that it shutdowns the pc or enables lights and fans and whatnot

I could write you a program so that when you get a mouse click your computer shuts down, or uses any other API functions. Enabling lights and fans might be a different story, though, because it's not an API function. I'd have to check if I can recognize clicks from different mice; I know I can recognize different joysticks, but maybe Windows just clumps all of them together in one. Also, you might consider taking apart the mouse so that you can work with individual buttons and put them on your desk or whatever.

i was planning on making the mouse more 'compact' and isnt there a driver for each?
post #4 of 8
There is a driver for each, but the scripting language I was planning to use does everything through the API, not driver hooking.

No problem, and sorry I couldn't help more. However, since the Windows API functions differentiate between joysticks, I can write you a script for a joystick. Just a thought.

what about having a button to the power button pins? you can easily just atach one wire to your existing mouse cord.
