Windows 7: Power Management Bluetooth Mouse

Power Management Bluetooth Mouse

Is there somewhere sneaky I can find power management settings for Bluetooth devices? Either through group policy or elsewhere?

I am rolling with Windows 7 x64 full admin rights on an Acer ASPIRE 7750G.

I have the most up-to-date drivers for my mouse (Logitech M555b): Bluetooth_Atheros_6.18.0624.0302_W7x64_A

... but I get no option to set power management settings.

This is a real pain because one of the latest windows updates seems to make my bluetooth go to sleep and not wake up.

* Mouse is working fine at startup
* After not using the mouse for a few seconds, it will not work any more until I turn it off and on again

Many "fixes" on the net point me to power management settings... except as seen from the pic... I am lacking said settings.

I have removed my driver, disabled automatic driver detection, and re-installed... to no avail.

EDIT: Tried the HID device, and noticed Power Settings, but the option I need is greyed out. Does that mean it is incompatible?

Did you ever find a fix for this problem? I'm having the same issue. No 'Power Management' option on my bluetooth radio properties.

I did a lot of things, but I think the eventual fix was letting windows update pick the driver + changing the mouse batteries. It might have been a cheap battery problem.
