I used a Bluetooth mouse and frequently when my laptop goes to sleep, the mouse stops working. Bluetooth control panel says it's working fine, as does the Device Manager information. Sometimes it just stops working if I step away. When I turn my Bluetooth off and on, it stays off. The toggle switch still looks like it's on, but when I run "help with Bluetooth issue" it actually turns it on again. All of this is to say I've done everything I know to rectify this. I've even tried a different BT mouse. Is this the OS or am I looking at a hardware issue? I've reinstalled the Realtek Bluetooth 4.2 driver. I'm totally stymied and it's so frustrating having to restart all the time (restart sometimes solves the issue). Any suggestions? Anyone else experience this?
