Anyone else having an issue with bluetooth in 10.6.1? After sleep, I have to delete the mouse profile (and my headset) in order to reconnect them. Even a reboot will not work until they are reconnected. Just asking.
Mine works fine in all scenarios though I did use the Bluetooth Terminal Mod
which may/may not help in your case

I've not tried out mine on my Mini 9 since I'm still running Leopard. However, on my MacBook Pro it works really well. Probably wouldn't have bought it if I had realised there was currently no middle-click function. Hopefully they'll fix that with a driver update (something like two fingers on the mouse clicking).

Default magic mouse easier click mod - 11-08-2009, 11:32 PM

hey guys. if any of the rest of you find the click too firm on the magic mouse, you can open it up (use ifixit instructions) and bend the spring inside so it's flatter.

I still hope that apple will update the driver to allow tap click, but in the meantime this magic mouse mod makes it easier to use.

p.s. the plastic rails are stuck in with extruded plastic legs, so those have to be cut off to reassemble...luckily the aluminum battery cover hold them. I am thinking to replace them with polyethylene or teflon, since they don't slide smoothly enough for me.
