Your computer may lose the connection to a paired Bluetooth device if you temporarily move it out of range, turn it off, or if it has low batteries. By making the device a Favorite in Bluetooth preferences, it will automatically re-pair with the computer as soon as it is back in range or turned on again.

You can set Favorites in Bluetooth preferences. Select a device from the device list, then click the Add to Favorites button. Favorites appear with a heart icon (Figure 1).
