A keyboard-only method of pairing a Bluetooth mouse
Authored by: mattjgerard on Jul 27, '07 09:11:51AM

There is an easier way, as I usually loose my connection when I close my MBP. Apple-Tab to the finder, press any letter on the keyboard and that will select a file on the desktop. then press SHIFT-APPLE-B to initiate the Blutooth file transfer utility. If your Mighty Mouse is saved as a favorite, use the arrow keys to select it hit enter, and as soon as the BT utility discovers that it CaN"T send the file to a mouse, the mouse will work! Hit cancel and quit. The only quirk, and this might be on my machine only, is that when the BT utility starts up, it always moves to the back of the stack so I have to apple tab to it.

Enjoy!
