    Do you have access to an external mouse?
    Do you still have warranty?

    Anyway, here are the steps:
    press CTRL+fn+F2 at once
    use the arrow keys to navigate the :apple: menu to "System Preferences", press ENTER
    type "blue", as the search field is automatically selected in System Preferences
    select "Bluetooth" and press ENTER
    press the TAB key three times
    select your MT via the arrow keys
    press the TAB key two times (icon with the little gear is selected)
    press SPACEBAR
    use arrow keys to go to "connect" and press ENTER

    No usb mouse, no warranty.

    Thanks for the tip.
