Same problem, can't get the magic mouse to pair after upgrade to Lion.

Same problem. I was able to delete mouse and repair. Now I can't turn off bluetooth or delete mouse.

I managed to reconnect but only manually, after switching both bluetooth and the mouse off and on several times.
Best you can do is give feedback at apple.com/feedback, clamor folks !

My Magic Mouse and Wireless Keyboard are recognized and connected but now the mouse will not scroll as it did when I was on Snow Leopard. Hope some fix can be found for this.

Another wiyth a *** ******* awful Magic Mouse. Connects just fine, but erratic scrolling and very poor performance.

Magic Mouse doesn't show up in list of Bluetooth devices but others such as iPhone do show up. Reset the PRAM, trashed Bluetooth prefs and did and SMC reset. No dice.

Researched heavily and found a suggested work around.
Mac Pro's, all models, are having trouble communicating with the Magic Mouse and a Firmware Update is allegedly on the way.
In the meantime, go into Bluetooth Preferences and delete everything using the little button. With wired keyboard and mouse hooked up reboot, set up keyboard and Magic Mouse again and when connected remove the back from the Magic Mouse.
The batteries will not fall out and this makes quite a difference., Suggestion is metal back is causing interference to the signal reaching the Bluetooth Card.

Not sure about the others, but I'm using a MacBook Pro.
I already deleted everything from the Bluetooth list, and tried to re-add but it doesn't recognize the mouse.
I also, just for kicks tried the "no back" trick you mentioned and still nothing.

Not sure why I got lucky, but I used a wire mouse and simply added a new device and it is still working.

I have been having the same problem since upgrading to Lion, however, I find that when I do a "power cycle" with my Bluetooth, that is turn it off, wait a few moments, and turn it back on, that I am able to connect my Magic Mouse again to my Macbook Pro.

Hi, I had the same problem but it's fixed now. It seems that the order you turn mouse and bluetooth off and on makes the difference. This is what worked on my macbook pro (eventually!):
turn off bluetooth and mouse. Turn on bluetooth. Open system preferences. Open mouse. It starts searching. then Turn on mouse. Hey presto! (and much to my surprise) it found it.
It also worked if I left the mouse on, and turned it off and on after opening the mouse in system preferences and it had started searching. But if, for example, I turned on the mouse before opening system preferences,it was no go.
There is another issue: I (like I suspect a lot of people) switch between lion and snow leopard (Macbook Pro and Mac Mini respectively), and every time it has to be paired manually. I have found I have to use the entire process shown above with both OSs.
Also, the mouse has to be paired to Lion at every startup. I never have to re-pair the mouse with Snow leopard on startup (unless it's been paired to Lion in the meantime!).
I hope that some of this might help someone, even just a little.

Glad to see I'm not the only one experiencing this. Booting up the Mac Pro I was slowly getting used to the Lion login screen overlapped by the "no mouse or trackpad connected" dialog window..
In my case simply flipping the powerswitch on the Magic Mouse on-off-on fixes the problem though, mouse is found almost instantly and then takes another few seconds to connect. I'll give the "leave the back of the mouse" trick a go tonight and report back.
Firmware update you say? That would be the first in a loooong time for my "old" Mac Pro 1.1.. Doubt that that will happen..

For me i guess problem is fixed in Version 10.7.2 - Build 11C43. Actally i have no problems with my Mighty Mouse and my MacBook Pro.
If the Magic Mouse lost connection it reconnects very shortly in 10.7.2 Beta Build 11C43.
So i guess in the official 10.7.2 it will be fixed... Fingers crossed...
