Magic Mouse Cannot Connect - Mac OS X v10.6.3

I updated my OS X to v10.6.3 recently. After rebooting, my Magic Mouse seems to be having problems connecting to my Macbook Pro. The System finds the mouse, but when I click on Continue to connect, it fails. Anybody experiencing the same problem?

Magic Mouse disconnects

I too have disconnection problems with Magic Mouse after updating to OS 10.6.3. After doing so I recall seeing "Low Battery" pop up signals on my iMac's screen. After I replaced the batteries my mouse would disconnect sporadically. I have to keep my "wired" mouse connected to go to the Blue Tooth icon to connect the Magic Mouse. Might it be the batteries?

Try this. So far it is working

Go to the Bluetooth icon and scroll down to Open Bluetooth References. Using a wired mouse or your track pad, hi-lite your Magic Mouse installation and then use the minus (-) button to uninstall your installation of Magic Mouse. Then reinstall it!

Apparently updating from 10.6.2 to 10.6.3 altered something in the Magic Mouse's installation.
