Bluetooth mouse connection problems- solved


I got a new Bluetooth mouse and it was always losing connection (not working) when my sp3 awoke from sleep. I was about to return the *#&^% thing and get another one from Amazon when I read about a fix in one of Amazon's comments. Seems Windows defaults to controlling the shutoff of Bluetooth whenever it thinks it should.
What does it know?

* Search for Device Manager
* Open the 'Bluetooth' category.
* Double click on "Marvell AVASTAR Bluetooth Radio Adapter".
* In the new window that comes up, click on the "Power Management" tab.
* Uncheck the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

Mouse works like a charm!
Note this may improve connection problems (especially after sleeping) with all your Bluetooth devices.
