the mouse looks cool :D but i was wondering... with an optical mouse the led is always on... but what if u add the blue led (and i take it always stays on too) wouldn`t that mean that the led would eventually cause so much heat (in coöperation with the existing led) that it would melt the mouse case or cause internal damage?

With correctly calculated resistor the led can be on for years without overheating so if done properly there will be no problems.

It's important you use a resistor (if needed, almost always is) to limit the voltage to within the safe operating range or your LED
