    This should work if you are using MAC OS 10.5.x (I'm not sure for ealrier versions).

    Choose Apple>System Preferences, or click the System Preferences icon on the dock.

    In the System Preferences Window
    Click the Bluetooth icon that appears under the hardware section.

    Highlight the device you want to unpair eg Mighty Mouse.

    Click on the icon at the bottom of the pane.

    A dialogue box will open
    Are you sure you wan to remove this device?
    Removing this device disconnects it from your computer.
    Once removed, it is no longer available to applications or services.

    Click on Remove.

    Repeat for the keyboard (called a typewriter in the bluetooth pane).

    If you don't want to use any bluetooth devices with the mac book mini you could also do the following

    Uncheck the two boxes in the blue tooth pane which state
    On and Dicoverable repsectively.

    good luck

    apologies, i notice my attempt at describing a button was rendered as a Question mark in Safari.
    I meant you should click on the minus symbol represented as a - in the bluetooth interface.
