bluetooth adapter not detected after resume


So on my Slackware64 14 installation I'm using bluedevil along with kde 4.8.5 for bluetooth connectivity. I made the rc.bluetooth script executable using chmod and bluetooth starts everytime I boot just as expected. Annoyingly though if I suspend and then resume my computer bluetooth stops working. The bluedevil applet disappears from the kde system tray. If I try and start the bluedevil applet it informs me that it cannot find any bluetooth adapters. Could somebody shed some light on why my bluetooth adapter cannot be detected after resume?

Thanks alot.

On my rig, suspend and hibernate power down all wireless hardware, including bluetooth. A quick recycle with the hotkeys (Fn-F2 but yours may be different) and everything is good to go.

The problem I see with this hypothesis is that the adapter being powered down doesn't explain why the bluedevil app would disappear. If the adapter is powered down the bluedevil icon just shows a little red x in the corner. In my case bluedevil quits altogther after suspend because it is unable to detect the adapter whether powered up or down.

I'm using blueman-applet and that goes away with a bluetooth powerdown (at least under Fluxbox as the wm) but comes back when power is restored. Maybe give that a go and see if it works better?
