A Couple Of Bluetooth Questions

When I first turn on my Mac mini and it boots up and gets to the login screen, it takes a few seconds for the keyboard to actually type anything. Is this normal?

Also, when I turn the power button to off on my BT Mighty Mouse, it loses connection. (normal, right?) How do I get the connection back once it loses it? I tried just turning the mouse back on, but the light just blinked and nothing happened. I then connected my old Logitech Wireless USB Mouse and set up the Mighty Mouse again and it worked fine.

I've never owned a computer with Bluetooth before, so I was just wondering if this is normal?

With my BT mouse and iBook turning off the mouse causes the connection to quit. A "connection lost" message pops up. If I turn the mouse back on I have to press the left button to re-establish the connection.

If your keyboard sleeps after inactivity it may be that you need to wake it up.

Its normal for the keyboard to take a little while to connect. If you want to reconnect your mouse, you can just move it or click a button after turning it on.
