    From a very quick glance I couldn't find my question, so here it is:

    I have a MBP 13", and I just got a magic mouse. Everything works fine, but every time I turn the mouse back on after turning it off, I have to manually connect my mouse to my laptop. Is there a way that the mouse can automatically connect to my computer, or do I have to "system preferences" it every time?

    Thanks for the help.

    It'll reconnect automatically. Sometimes you just have to give it a bit of time!

    Wow. I spent so much time moving it around and checking preferences, and all I had to do was click it.

    Who feels dumb? This guy.

    Haha thanks for the help. :)

    I found that out yesterday and felt the same.

    BTW you don’t have to turn the mouse off when putting the computer to sleep, cause the mouse goes to sleep with it and then reconnects all-automatically.

    Yeah, but I'm paranoid about my battery life. So I like to turn it off.

    An Apple tech. told me it is more economical on battery life if left on all the time. Seems pretty logical.
