    I have a Macbook 13 inch 2.16 ghz running 10.5.7 and have recently encountered 2 problems, fairly major for me..

    1. Every time my display shuts off i lose connection to the internet, and it does not automatically reconnect to my wireless

    2. Bluetooth is no longer working at all on my computer, just stopped one day. I would like it back so i can use my Mighty Mouse

    how can i fix these shits?

    thanks for the response!

    1. when the computer sits idle for a period of time, the display goes to sleep and the WIFI turns off. this just started happening and i did not change any of my system preferences they have been the same for 2 years.

    2. The mouse has full batteries the little bluetooth symbol on the menu bar next to time machine backups has a thingy thru it and when i click on it instead of getting many options it only says Bluetooth: Not Available

    and when i go into system profiler and click on bluetooth it says no information found. I know i can take it to the Apple store, but if it is something i can fix i would prefer it considering that the closest apple store is like an hour away

    Thanks again
