comment Motherboard won't power-on until it rests for ~10min with no power plugged in
It resets the voltages (not sure if I've worded that quite right). The mobo won't boot until it registers a certain exact voltage, if it's not quite right - it won't boot.

Whether or not it's a wireless mouse will make a big difference to the answers you get...

Sure - just set up a variable with the format you like and use it in the filename- take a look at this article for a quickstart

comment Windows 7 on SSD using Symlinks
You can use a windows disk to boot to a command prompt - at this point the files will not be locked. SteamMover won't be available there obviously, but you could use it to build the correct commands and save them before restarting.

comment Windows 7 on SSD using Symlinks
This answer to a similar question on serverfault details the best way to go about moving your Users folder - some of the comments have some warnings that you should read. There aren't compatibility problems with Windows itself, but some legacy applications may look in the wrong location for things.
