    Me again...

    I got a Logitech Bluetooth mouse and it won't automatically pair once I turn the computer off, then on again, or even put it to sleep.

    Is there any way to keep the thing paired, or set it to auto pair? Cause pairing it every time would suck :(

    By resetting the mouse, I assume you mean pushing the reset button on the bottom of the mouse....okay now that I read what I just typed, I feel a bit dumb.

    Anywho, yes, I did reset the mouse, but it won't work. I have to re-pair it every time after the mac goes to sleep, or it shuts down.

    I really wish I had known about steermouse before I bought this mouse. I have an intellimouse explorer for bluetooth, but it wouldn't pair with my mac, so I bought this logitech.

    I'll give the steermouse thing a try, thanks.

    I also have a logitech bluetooth mouse, but I am not having that problem? Do you have the computer set to discoverable?

    Go to System Preferences > Bluetooth, and check out all the settings.

    I don't know what I did, but it works great now. I tested it by shutting off the mouse and putting it to sleep, and by shutting down the computer and shutting off the mouse.

    In both scenarios, it paired right up when both were powered up :big grin:

    I think it may have been in my bluetooth settings...I just checked all the boxes and it works well.

    Thanks guys :)

    Yeah, your settings might have told it to not auto-connect.

    Hold down the click button on the mouse for about 5 seconds and it should automatically pair back up. Thats what i need to do with my mighty mouse.

    Hope this helps :bigok:
