That's odd because my Magic Mouse has not died and we've had it for about two months.

I agree, I bought my mouse several months ago and I haven't had any charge issues. I do manually turn the switch off when I'm done with the mouse.

It's a known problem: Battery Life in Magic Mouse Pulls a Disappearing Act

Here are two tips from the link above.

The Magic Mouse is supposed to go into hibernation when it detects a lack of use, which should help extend battery life. Turning the Magic Mouse off manually when you're done using it, with the switch on the mouse's belly, should help push battery life a little further.

Another option to get the most life out of the Magic Mouse's batteries is to replace them with either Lithium-Ion AA or rechargeable NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride) batteries.
