I was having the same problem with mine. So, after playing around a bit with un-pairing, and re-pairing, etc., I think I stumbled on a solution:

Try turning off Bluetooth on your Mac, then back on. After I did this, I was able to cycle the Magic Mouse's power and then re-connect as expected with a click.

Here's a harder question for you.
Say you switched the magic mouse off while logged in, then when you go to switch it back on you had the click squeezed while gripping the mouse to get to the tiny button.
Now what? Mouse un pairs, goes into discovery mode and won't reconnect even when u switch it off and back on. You have no other mouse only keyboard. I can get into settings with keyboard. I can navigate to Bluetooth devices by typing into search and using tab but how do I navigate to the little plus (+) to re pair my mouse?

When first switched on the mouse displays its battery status, so clicking won't initiate the connection. This gives you more than enough time to release your grip and stop clicking. After a few seconds, the mouse enters discovery mode (the little light on the back begins to blink) at which point you can click and the mouse should connect to the computer. Even if you're still gripping the mouse, letting go and clicking once more will enable the connection to be re-established.

Just hit the down arrow once you get to the settings icon. once connect is highlighted, hit return and you're all set.
