What does "reset" mean?
I have tried:
(1) Removing and reinstalling the batteries in the mouse
(2) Turning Bluetooth off, restarting the system, then turn Bluetooth back on
(3) Choosing the mouse from the "Bluetooth" menu, disconneting it, then setting up the mouse anew by going to
"Set up Bluetooth Device" in "Sytem Preferences"
Item (3) works but only until the system goes to sleep again.

No, clicking left or right on the mouse had no effect on connecting.
But the problem was solved in the meantime...
I resolved the issue by going to "System Preferences" > "Bluetooth" > "Advanced" and checking the box labelled "Allow Bluetooth devices to wake this computer". Now the mouse is detected and connected as soon as the computer awakens.

I'm going to try that. I don't think it should be necessary, it wasn't in SL, but what I think what that is doing is to keep BT active during sleep and, therefore, the connection is never lost with the mouse in the first place. But if that makes the mouse reconnect when I wake the computer in the morning then I'll take it ...
I'll have to see if clicking the mouse with the lid closed wakes the compyter up. I suspect it will ...

Thanks, Lily -- So here's another (as tho' I needed it!) reminder of the danger of not using the eyes God gave me... In System Preferences, I queried variations of Bluetooth this-or-that and had that little highlight halo- thingie linger on the "Network" and "Sharing" icons, respectively to the left and the right of the Bluetooth icon. I even _called_ myself looking for a Bluetooth icon, but didn't see it! Holy Moley do I feel dumb! THANKS!
