I have unexpectedly begun experiencing recurrent problems with my iMac not able to "discover" my bluetooth Magic Mouse. The bluetooth system works fine to communicate with the keyboard (and can see the TV in the next room), and I have tried turning the bluetooth system off and back on with no result. When the bluetooth saw the mouse momentarily last night I was able to confirm that the mouse is 100% charged. I have googled some recommendations to remove the Mac's bluetooth preference list (plist), but as an English major that would challenge my tech skills. There is a second Mac in the room, but I don't believe there is any cross-talking or interference.
I've also been having problems reliably communicating with my new Canon printer, and had to resort to relying on the USB connector for that, but still having intermittent problems. I have also tried swearing in progressively increasing terms of abuse at all the devices, with no response yet.
So for the present I've had to dig out an ancient USB mouse with a color scheme that looks like it came with my old Performa. It works, but doesn't offer the right-click amenities and scrolling performance that I need to properly format blog posts.
So this is not another blogcation - but there will be a delay and decreased productivity.
