How to reconnect with previously paired bluetooth device?

I have a laptop running Ubuntu 10.04 with built-in bluetooth. If I connect to a bluetooth music receiver, then disconnect, when I try to connect again, in bluetooth properties there is only a disconnect button not a connect button.

Is there a quicker way to reconnect to a paired device, rather than deleting the device and repeating the process of scanning and pairing with the device first?

When you are done with the device, disconnect from it before shutting down or logging out. You shouldn't have to disconnect twice.
