Why I can't use my wireless mouse with the built in laptop bluetooth and need a mouse receiver?

    Because the receiver doesn't use Bluetooth but some proprietary protocol. – gronostaj Aug 7 '14 at 12:45

Your "common 2.4GHz wireless mouse" is not Bluetooth. Bluetooth may run on the same frequency, but it's completely different protocols.

    Nope, not in the slightest. If you want to use Bluetooth, you'll need to buy a Bluetooth mouse. – IAmTheSquidward Aug 7 '14 at 13:00
