    I just got a new 24" iMac and I am having problems with my bluetooth. I have a Logitech bluetooth mouse and keyboard hooked up via the internal bluetooth in boot camp. The mouse and keyboard work fine, but for some reason when I reboot or come out of standby the keyboard doesn't automatically connect back to the bluetooth. The mouse works fine, but the keyboard I have to delete from the bluetooth list and add it again everytime I boot up to bootcamp. I am not using the keyboard in OSX. Does anyone have the same problem? I'm trying to figure if it is my keyboard of the bluetooth drivers.

    Having the same problem on 17" MacBook Pro running Vista SP1 - the Bluetooth mouse is usually not recognized after wake up from sleep or hibernation. What's weird is that it was working fine for a few months. Its like some recent Windows update caused this ....
    I've had to create a shortcut to the Bluetooth driver installer from Boot Camp and place it on my desktop so I can run it easily. That will usually help. Also, make sure the batteries in the mouse or keyboard aren't running low. I've found that low batteries will impact device discovery even when there's enough juice to run the device.
