The Bluetooth on my Intel Mini(10.6.8) seems to have stopped working. Neither my Apple keyboard nor my Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 will connect.

They both work with another Mac, so they are not the problem.

Bluetooth is obvious on for the Mini, and a restart has not solved the problem.

Any ideas please?

Obvious things: is the Bluetooth icon showing on the menu bar and when you click it, turned on? What about the System Preferences > Bluetooth? Discoverable? Can it see other BT devices? My MBPr can see my TV, AirPods and so on (not paired) and the mouse (turned off). My mini server (in another room) can see the AirPods (not paired).

Sorted it by deleting the devices from the list and redoing the setup for each again.
