Spotty Bluetooth Problems
My bluetooth is very unstable in Mavericks. The magic mouse constantly disconnects and reconnects along with laggy tracking. I swapped the mouse and the problem remains while everything is fine in ML. Anyone else experiencing anything similar?

Are any of you experiencing issues with non apple BT devices? I had an issue that was being caused by the Logitech LLC software (I have a DiNovo Edge BT KB). I removed the software (it can be found under Applications > Utilities and that solved my problem.

Unreliable Bluetooth Connectivity in Mavericks
I have an old iMac from 2007, 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB, OS X 10.9 with Bluetooth connected, Apple-branded keyboard, mouse and trackpad. Ever since my upgrade to Mavericks, I lose connectivity to one of the three, almost at random, when recovering from sleep, whether I put the iMac to sleep explicitly or it times out due to inactivity.
The only reliable "fix" is to reboot! This is for an iMac that I used to go months without a reboot!
Other attempts to fix by explicitly disconnecting or removing the affected device does not result in reliable pairing...connects and disconnects repeatedly.
Really bummed out. Not a Mac expert by any stretch.
Anyone have any idea of a more elegant fix?

I'm having the same issue on an early 2008 Mac Pro (8-core Xeon, 12GB, mirrored 3TB, with separate 1TB and 2TB boot drives (Mountain Lion server and client, respectively). Now have Mavericks installed on a new Kingston 120GB SSD, which is where the problem shows up.
At first I thought it was a hardware conflict with the new SSD drive I'd installed (mounted directly on a PCI-e SATA 3 card...very elegant!!).
I installed Mavericks on the new drive, restored my apps and user folder to it, rebooted to it and all worked....until both my Logitech diNovo keyboard and Apple trackpad will stop working for 30 seconds or so at a shot. This happens every couple of minutes, so it makes the installation near-unusable.
Reboot to the old Mountain Lion installation on the other hard drive, and no problems whatsoever, yet the new SSD drive still mounts and is usable with no issues.
The *interesting* thing is that if I launch Call of Duty 4 (or presumably other games...haven't tried as I'm not a big gamer) while booted from the Mavericks drive, both the bluetooth keyboard and trackpad work flawlessly. It's as if the problem is with Apple's BT driver and CoD4 is somehow bypassing it? I played CoD4 yesterday for over an hour with zero problems, but both before *and* after that, the same BT keyboard and trackpad kept dropping out as if they'd lost connection. I plugged in an old USB keyboard and when the BT one stops working, the USB one still does, so the system isn't completely hung...just lost BT.
Anyone have any ideas?

same BT issue with 3rd party BT keyboard
My KC1280 BT keyboard drops out regularly and doesn't want to pair. I bought it was a boner so they sent me another. One irks fine for my kindle fire HD 7", but can't the one to stay on with the 2006 MBP. (Too old for Mavericks.) Stymied.
