Windows 8.1 and Bluetooth disappearing after Hibernation

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Touchsmart 15-b181ea
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

Hi Guys, got a problem and hoping to get some info. Recently added a BCM943228HMB 2x2 Wifi/Bluetooth Card. Many Thanks goes to Paul_Tikkanen for accessing the driver to make it work. 

(     Sep 17, 2015

Bit of an issue, seems quite common with Windows 8.1 at least. My Laptop is fully updated. Every time I close the Lid and the Laptop Hibernates, when I open it back up, the Bluetooth Tray Icon is gone. In Device Manager, the Bluetooth Icon is there but there are some instructions missing, I have to Restart the machine, then go into Device Manager and there will be more Instruction - ie, Power Saving, which I have unchecked. When it goes back into Hibernation, again on wake - no Bluetooth. This is really frustrating, I've checked Microsoft Updates/Packs, been told I already have the update to sort this. Does the Driver share the Instruction from the WiFi driver? Thank You
