Bluetooth stops working at some point

Hi!

 

I have the HP EliteBook 8440p with Windows 7 x64 Prof. and I want to use the V470 Logitech Bluetooth mouse.

 

When I start Windows the mouse works fine, but after a while it stops working. It seems as if the bluetooth module turns off, but I have no idea how to turn it on again.

I did not touch the Wireless control button, nor does it help using it after the bluetooth is gone. Interesingly I also do not have a bluetooth symbol in my control Panel, but the bluetooth drivers from HP are installed...

 

Any hints or suggestions what this might be?

 

Thx

Thomas

Re: Bluetooth stops working at some point

I have a Pavilion dv6-3267cl running on Windows 7 x 64 platform. I was using a logitech wireless mouse and I suspect my drivers are incompatible with the new platform.was using this on XP. Do I need to disable the touchpad before install the new drivers or can I simply turn the touch pad off?

Re: Bluetooth stops working at some point

Have you tried disabling BT power management?

 

Skip the first part, look for the "Bluetooth Power Management Setting" heading.
