I have a bluetooth mouse which controls my laptop. Every time I restart the laptop (several times a day), I have to go to the bluetooth applet, find 'Bluetooth Laser travel mouse', and then click 'connect'. It connects almost instantly after pressing that.

Is there any way I can do that from the command line, so that I could make it a script and assign it a shortcut key?

(I have read this question but it specifically pertains to audio.)

Through nothing I did (it must have been an update), it now connects automatically. – oldmankit Jan 27 '12 at 9:39
