Came home from work today and when I tried to use my Bluetooth wireless keyboard/mouse (Apple) they weren't working. I looked in the menubar and I have a wavy slash through the Bluetooth icon and when clicking on it I get a "Bluetooth: Not Available" method.


I've tried other suggestions like:


- resetting SMC

- deleting

- restarting with no periphreals plugged in

- creating a new user (when I do my that account acts like I have no Bluetooth at all)

- repairing permissions



In Console I get this message after starting up:


7/8/13 7:01:57.837 PM System Preferences[352]: [BluetoothHIDDevice][initWithHIDDevice] Unable to get Object ID from IORegistry


Any ideas?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4)
