    No matter what I do I can't seem to pair my bluetooth mouse from my 2017 iMac with my 2015 MacBook Pro.

    It pair perfectly with the iMac but the MacBook never sees it. Computer specs are listed below.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance

    Remove it from the IMAC in the BT window and try it on the MBP. I don't think you can be paired to more than 1 device at a time. Could be wrong though.....

    This why I bought another. I was using the same mouse with my mini and my MBP. I would have to repair it every time I switched.

    I think it still remembers what its paired too when the machine is off.

    Is your iMac turned on and paired with your mouse while you’re trying to pair it with your MBP? If so, disconnect the mouse from your iMac before trying to pair it with your MBP. While the mouse may be able to hold two or more Bluetooth profiles at a time, it can’t be connected to two computers at the same time. Also make sure your mouse is in pairing mode when you’re trying to pair it to your MBP for the first time.

    Thanks to all those who replied. It was as simple as un-pairing from my iMac and pairing with my MacBook.
