Turning on Bluetooth (without using a mouse)

Hi all,

Most of us know, people are capable of stupid things. I, am no exception. Today I managed to accidently turn off bluetooth on my brand new iMac, leaving my wireless mouse useless. Seeing as how I don't have a WIRED mouse, I am at a loss to figure out how I can activate bluetooth again.

Is it possible to cycle through menus using keys on the keyboard? Is there a keyboard shortcut?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

And yes, I haven't been around Macs for long.
