You mentioned having this mouse for awhile. Used to have similar
and something to try (low tech) is to clean the connections. An eraser or
equivalent will do if you can get to the connectors on the dongle.
Sometimes the connections get a micro build up on them and a mild
non-residual abrasive does the trick. Just a wag. Worked with radio
connections (which is where I was inspired) and worked on usb ports/dongles
as well when I was support.
Don't ignore battery terminals, and don't use abrasives (which many
erasers contain), as they will damage metal plating. At one time, carbon
tetrachloride was used for cleaning contacts. These days there are much
safer designer contact cleaners
After cleaning, Stabilant 22 contact enhancer
well for me over many years.

I think it may have Pournelle who first mentioned Stabilant 22.
