I work in an educational IT setting and we provide wireless keyboards/mice to many staff for presentations etc. What we have currently are Lenovo's Wireless Ultraslim keyboard/mouse combo. http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-and-parts/detail.page?&LegacyDocID=MIGR-77112
It appears that after a summer of sitting unused with a dead battery, many of the devices are no longer paired with their USB dongles. There are no buttons on the peripherals for pairing, however I have found that holding F2,F3,F4 and pressing '3' on the keyboard will pair the keyboard just fine. After more searching through the forums I came across a post regarding the mouse pairing method as well. Holding down left, middle and right click buttons while powering on the mouse should engage a "pairing mode" with the status LED flashing. I cannot get the LED to flash or the mouse to pair at all. I have replicated this issue on three different sets of keyboard and mice all with new batteries. Can anyone shed some light on how to repair the mouse!
mouse part number: 0B58509

How to pair the Lenovo Ultraslim Wireless Keyboard to the USB Receiver / Dongle:
Keyboard will be successful in pairing with the receiver....
The Keyboard and Mouse both have serial numbers on the bottom.
If they have the same serial number they should already be paired with the same dongle.
If not, follow the instructions above

Pairing the keyboard works with the above solution but I have mice that are not paired as well. I've doublechecked that the serial numbers match on both kb and mouse. Is there a way to pair the mouse with a dongle?

I found and copied these instructions from another post, but have not tried them yet. See if they work for you:
How to pair the Lenovo Ultraslim Wireless Mouse to the USB Receiver / Dongle:
Before pairing the mouse with the computer, please make sure the battery is inserted.
1. Take the dongle out of the mouse battery compartment, remove the old dongle in the PC USB port, and insert the new dongle in the PC USB port.
2. Press the right, middle and left buttons simultaneously, then switch on the mouse. The mouse will switch to pairing mode when the LED blinks slowly (around 2 times/second).
3. Put the mouse close to the dongle (within 30 cm) for pairing.
The whole process must be completed within 30 seconds; otherwise the mouse will switch back to normal mode.

Here are the instructions for pairing a keyboard and mouse to a new USB dongle. The instructions come from Lenovo the lines following with three stars are my notes on what it took to actually get it to work.

I had tremendous problems trying to get the mouse to connect ... after I had successfully linked the keyboard. I tried everything such as trying different USB ports, trying additional dongles inserted in the USB port (I have spares) and then reinserting the dongle in question back into the port.. I was just about to give up and then I figured it out.
With the keyboard already linked up and working
Remove the batteries from the keyboard
Now try linking up the mouse as per the above - Voila! working
Reinsert the batteries back into the keyboard
Now both keyboard & mouse work

Wonder if anyone here still suffering from this problem while it was 1st posted almost a year ago. In case you're still getting headache with it, I’d like to share my experience which not mentioned in previous reply and see if it helps.
I’ve got 50 sets of ultraslim combo in my office, and often facing the pairing problem. Same as what some previous posts stated, keyboard often ok when re-pairing but mouse not. I tried looking in carefully and see what’s the difference between those successfully re-paired mouse with failed cases, then I found a little tacky: REV number! Look at the back side of the mouse and you can find this number at the upper right hand corner. I located that mouse with “REV-V04” could be re-pairing by the 3-buttons-holding method. For all failed cases, all of them are “REV-V01” or “REV-V02”. Then I GUESS the operation command for these two versions maybe a bit different with V04. So I tried with different combinations of button-holding scenario and, thanks God, found the correct method finally:
By the two re-pairing method, all 50 sets of combo KM set still performing their duty in good condition! Hopefully it gives help for any of you!

Thanks for the update - I'll be looking at that tomorrow - I now tell our 1100 odd staff to make sure that they always put the dongle back in the mouse and tape the mouse to the keyboard when they relocate ..

Pairing the keyboard was a breeze. Pairing the mouse, was extremely frustrating.
My issue began as a number of dongles, keyboards and mice were all mixed up. The solution that worked for me is below. Hopefully this will save someone else any frustration.

This is the solution that worked for me!!
