    I've had my unibody macbook for about a month now.
    I use a mighty mouse most of the time. The past couple of weeks I've noticed that sometimes my mm would stop working and as I'm about to set up a new bluetooth device the bluetooth connection rises from the dead.

    Today, I think the bluetooth module crapped out on me because as I was clicking on the mm there was a pause and then I couldn't click or move my mm however, I could still move my trackpad but not click.

    So after force rebooting it, I noticed the Bluetooth icon in the menubar was gone. I searched in Spotlight for "bluetooth" resulting in Bluetooth File Exchange. As I click, it tells me that "No Bluetooth Hardware Found".

    I tried resetting the PRAM and repairing permissions. What is the next step?

    Somehow I fixed it.

    I perform a shut down instead of a restart and bluetooth is alive again.
