    Seems to be persistent problem with wireless "magic??" keyboards and mice. Sometimes it "finds"it but other times only a reset return it. The "shift-option" move is not the answer. 2016 IMac

    Get a wired keyboard and a Logitech wireless mouse with its own transmitter/receiver.
    They won't "get lost" on you. ;)

    Agreed. Although a wireless Logitech keyboard and mouse are just as good. I've never had any of them get lost from their Unify receiver. Plus unify works immediately on boot like a regular USB keyboard. Unlike Apple's Bluetooth options which sometimes won't connect until the OS starts to load.

    Have you tried an SMC and NVRAM/PRAM reset?

    With recent macOS versions, if you don''t want your "pets" to get "lost" you need to put them on a leash, as Fishrrman suggests. Bypassing Bluetooth by using a Logitech wireless mouse, and possibly a companion Logitech wireless keyboard, is also a good option. Logitech's wireless tech is much more stable and reliable than the multipurpose Bluetooth.
