bluetooth logitech mouse doesn't work after standby or hibernate


My Logitech bluetooth mouse works well on a normal startup in console with gpm and also with X.

After putting my laptop on "standby" or "hibernate" mode, I can't use the mouse anymore ... I always have to reboot normaly the laptop.

I tried to use the script "/etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth restart" and also the command "hidd --connect MAC_ADR" without any results. The loaded module list is the same before and after the resume. The difference is that the command hciconfig displays zeros for the BD Address instead of the MAC address.

Have you an idea ? Many thanks!

Not a fix but a possible band-aid.

Have you tried stopping bluetooth prior to going into "standby" or "hibernate" and then restarting it once you wake it up?

Thanks you for your answer.

Yes, with "/etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth stop" before going into suspend/hibernate and "/etc/rc.d/rc.bluetooth start" after wake up. I always have to restart my laptop.

I remembered that with an older kernel (don't remember the version) it was working but instable (had sometimes the same result) but now I get all the time this issue (with the kernel "generic-smp-2.6.27.7" in slackware and also tried with 2.6.28.1).
