My MacBook Air bluetooth had stopped working with my iPhone 5, but still worked with my Magic Mouse and New iPad.  Now it has stopped working with my mouse, but now it works with the iPhone.  Sounds tlike a hardware problem with my MacBook.

MacBook Air, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    If there were a hardware problem BT wouldn't be working at all. BT can be wonky. When you say it isn't working, do you mean it doesn't automatically connect with a device (like your mouse) or that when you attempt to manually connect it fails? (This being why I always have a wired keyboard an mouse on hand.)


    Have you opened the BT preference tab, deleted your mouse configuration and try re-pairing it? Note: make sure the mouse is on (look for the green light) before initiating the pair. This may be one of the biggest reasons BT seems to be broken - batteries dead.
