You'll still see similar behavior when using the mouse in it's most agressive power saving mode, but the max performance battery mode should funciton fine as expected
And how about the third, "normal mode"?

I would just like to say that I was looking for a gaming grade wireless mouse and almost got the 'Razer Mamba' due to reading this thread. However due to most of my peripherals being Logitech (diNovo Edge keyboard, 720 web cam etc) and because all my previous devices have been flawlessly great I bit the bullet and got the Logitech G700.
I am so glad I did as I have none of the issues with it stated in this thread and it is the best mouse I have ever used (including the Razer Mamba).

I've been having the same issue with my G700 and it's the only problem I've had with is so far (aside from a rather short battery life, which could very well be stemming from my abnormally frequent use of my PC as of late).
I'm so relieved to hear a fix is on the way. Can we expect it within the next few days?

Glad to hear Logitech was able to get to this problem quickly, hopefully we see the patch soon. Also, maybe take a look at some of the problems cropping up with unresponsive thumb button G keys.

Very soon I'll have a manual patch available for download. It will require some folder navigation, force quitting things via Task Manager, and a restart, but it should work
A little bit after that we'll have something available through the "Update Now" button in the software, but that will take a full QA approval cycle to get done, so we're going to go with the above option first so people have the fix in their hands sooner than later.
Also, turns out I made a incorrect conjecture in a prior post according to QA, so I've edited that out and let's wait n see what the software guys can do.

Thanks Charles. Could you give us more info on the form of the patch? Windows driver or firmware patch for mouse?
I asked because I'm a Mac user. I just got the G700, experienced the problem, and quickly found my way to this page. I've accepted that Logitech doesn't have Mac drivers for the G700 so I'll be limited in the button support, though it sounds like third-party universal driver tools like SteerMouse, USB Overdrive or especially ControllerMate should let me overcome that.
If something can be done to update the mouse itself I assume that should work for Mac. But if it's going to be dependent on updated Windows drivers that will always be running, then it sounds like Mac users would be out of luck. (I don't mind applying a patch via a PC or a Windows VM).
BTW, I'd really encourage Logitech to take Mac drivers more seriously. Even if you consider the Mac gaming market small, products like the G700 are very appealing for non-gaming power users.
