Try a couple of things:
Trash a preference file (com.apple.bluetooth.plist) and restart.
Delete and then add the mouse back in.
Make the mouse a favorite: Open system preferences>bluetooth. Highlight the mouse and click on the little gear and select +"show more info."+ Click on the gear again and make the device a favorite.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 12, 2010 5:40 PM (in response to Barry Hemphill)Thanks Barry, I was having this problem with my Dad's iMac (10.6.3) and your tip worked great.
The issue started happening after the 10.6.3 update, then every time the computer would go to sleep, it had to be waken from the keyboard because the mouse would have lost the connection at every sleeping instance.
Your tip about the bluetooth plist and the favourite seemed to do the trick. Just wanted others to know that this does seem to work, for me at least.Macbook @ 2.4GHz, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
