Arduino BT AT Mega 328 - quick question

Hi all,

I am running a project which involves connecting via bluetooth an Arduino and my Macbook Pro. I have set up the device fine, with the passcode, but when I look at my bluetooth prefs it has a red light next to the ArduinoBT. My question is: is this natural? and once 'connected' to the mac, if connected properly, should the ArduinoBT show up under the 'devices' menu on the bluetooth drop down menu. Any light shed on this would be fantastic, as it may narrow down the issue as to why I can't read any data from a FSR into my max patch.

Thanks for your time
