    bluetooth devices renamed?
    they use to say just "keyboard" and "mouse". not sure whats going on or why this changed?

    should I be concerned about this? yesterday my mac would not wake from sleep, had to shut down and zap the pram. I've done this before, first time Ive seen this happen. seems odd to me.

    By zapping the PRAM, you basically set such things to a default setting.

    I believe you can set the names to anything you want using the BT setup assistant. Your choice, or just carry on unless the names are confusing or something.

    thanks. Ive zapped pram before and have never seen those get renamed. That is why I was wondering what was going on.

    Well, I'm assuming that such an action could have changed the names.

    You can always change them if you like:
    Change the name of a Bluetooth accessory
    Change the name of a Bluetooth accessory - Apple Support
