Since I installed 10.6.2 on my 2009 Mac Mini I keep loosing the bluetooth keyboard and mouse after the computer has been asleep.


I can eventually get the to connect again but it usually requires that I delete the mouse and/or keybard and reconfigure it from scratch.


It is pretty inconvenient spending 5 minutes to reconned the devices after the system wakes up. I keep a USB mouse plugged in so I can manipulate the control panels. Once connected the bluetooth devices work fine as long as the system doesn't go to sleep.


The bluetooth devices won't seem to wake up the computer either even though "let bluetooth dievices wake this computer" is checked.


In a number of forums, I see postings where there seems to be trouble with the bluetooth on Mountain Lion but for me this didn't start until I installes 10.6.2. It was working ok with 10.6.0 and 10.6.1.


Is there some patch that I missed?


Thanks for any insight anyone has.

    First, I assume we can replace any "6" in your post with an "8", correct?


    Next, since 10.8.2 there was only one more "Supplemental Update" which you should have found in and downloaded via the App Store. If not, here it is.


    Finally - for now, did you make your BT gear "Favorites" in the Bluetooth Preferences? Might be worth trying.
