If any of you have a Logitech wireless mouse, and you have the Logitech Setpoint software installed, you've surely noticed that the Low Battery Warning popup gets annoying, really quick.
It's not very accurate. When it starts reporting my batteries as being "CRITICAL", it means that I have about two weeks of using my mouse left before the mouse starts having communication issues. I'd rather not be forced to buy new batteries every three weeks just to shut up an annoying popup.
I really like the extra buttons on my mouse, so shutting down Setpoint isn't a good option.
Searching the Logitech Forums proved fruitless. Not only is there not a way to turn the blasted thing off, but the programmers seem to have no motivation to program that functionality in.
I decided to take matters into my own hands. After some searching, I found the xml file where Setpoint keeps its language information. I played with the settings a bit, and found a solution.
Browse to your Setpoint program folder. It's probably in Program Files/Logitech/SetPoint
With your favorite text editor (Notepad will work fine), open KEM.xml, and find the following lines:
<String ALIAS="IDS_BATT_STATUS_MSG">Your %1's batteries are %2</String>
If you change that line to:
You will find that the popup never rears its ugly head, again. The great thing about this fix is that you can still hover over the tray icon, and see your battery status.
As a side note, if you wish, you can change that text to whatever you would like. I changed it to something more amusing, and found that, although it was still annoying, the popup wasn't nearly as bad if it were cursing at me.
