I'm new here, and I just got the wiimote whiteboard project up and running.

However, it took me several hours to get it connected and recognized by the program. It was a real pain in the butt.

Last night, I left my computer in standby mode and the wiimote connected (to avoid the connection hassles). The wiimote's battery is now at 78% (They were fresh yesterday). How can I maximize the life of my batteries? I don't want to keep changing them every few days.

Either just turn off the wiimote when not in use, or if you can, make a 3V (it uses two 1.5V batteries, right?)  voltage source that plugs into  a wall socket and clips onto the battery clips for the wiimote.  otherwise, the wiimotes are notorious for draining batteries fast.
