Hey, I got a Mac Mini and it doesn't automatically connect when I turn it on. It's a Dell Bluetooth Keyboard, I've also got a mouse, but that connects just fine. When I turn it on, it automatically opens the bluetooth connection wizard and tells me to connect a keyboard, I just figured out that I can click on it, go to Dell BT Keyboard and click connect, but I'd prefer it to automatically connect.

Also, is there a way to get it where my mouse doesn't wake it from hibernation? My mouse goes off at everything, so I'd like just the keyboard to wake it up.
QUOTE Thanks
