Neither of those worked. It would be so great if there were an actual proven solution for this, rather than just the same recommended "fix something that broke somewhere" routine.

Same problem here. Attempted the SMC reset, NVRAM reset, combo update, and full reinstall via the Internet. Nothing made a difference, and I continue to sit here with my bluetooth trackpad non-functional, using the laptop open despite my external display.
It is really egregious how these sorts of significant problems always occur with updates but Apple does nothing to acknowledge their existence. Invariably, this will be fixed at some point, but Apple's quite deliberate refusal to comment on the reality of these issues and let the user community know they are working on it is just a bit ... douchey.

I could not agree more.
I should note that the downgrade (via a complete reinstall from Time Machine) got my Bluetooth up and running. This is really terrible on Apple's part, which is becoming par for the course. I suppose they're the new Microsoft...

This worked for me.
1. Shut down.
2. Disconnect main power (pull the plug.)
3. Press power button and hold for 10 seconds (do this twice)
4. Reconnect main power.
5. Press power button.
When it came back on, the Bluetooth worked and my Apple Magic Mouse was happy again.

Guess what? You reset the SMC. Pushing the power button twice ( or 40 times) while the computer is unplugged dies absolutely nothing.

Tonight I tried install , but ........
OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 Supplemental Update
Fixes an issue that may prevent certain USB Bluetooth adapters from working
Still waiting Apple response to solve problem without formatting or back to 10.8.4 (impossible for me -no backup)

Installed the New Supplemental update. No help. Built-in Bluetooth on my 27" Late 2009 iMac is still disabled.
Apple, you removed my last post. I'm not sure why. Yes, I was and remain annoyed, but if you're reading these, PLEASE fix this.

i use the OS 10.8.5 intel core i7 with 8go DDR3 build 12F45, bought one month ago.
I find the following bug : conflict between wifi and bluetooth. When my MagicMouse is enabled, if I walk away 3 or 5m without disabling the mouse, then the wifi stop working and then it searches for a network indicates that the connection is non-existent. miracle: I turn off the bluetooth in the menu bar and the wifi is working again properly??... anybody can tell me if this bug is known? is there a patch for this?
