When you say that you see devices connected to your Mac, are you in the Bluetooth Preference Panel or are they appearing in a different app? Normally your BT is not in discoverable mode, meaning other devices can't see/pair with it unless it has already been paired. When you open up the BT Pref Pane, the discoverable mode is automatically switched on. ...

I have re-installed the software on the computer and pulled off the battery, but the problem persists. So I believe it's a hardware issue and there is no solution... Which means that there is seemingly no answer to my question.

I recently had some Bluetooth device issues in Windows 8. I found that booting into OS X and removing the paired device from OS X, then booting into Windows 8 allowed me to pair the device. Remember to boot back into OS X and pair the device against once it is working in Windows. I also replaced the Broadcom drivers as well. I wrote about this here: Apple ...

More people have this annoyance. For me the solution was to use slightly fatter/bigger batteries (Duracell for example), or a piece of paper. When I very gently slammed my mouse on the table from a small hight, the connection would drop. Properly due to a short disconnection/movement of the batteries.
