Windows 7: USB Eject and Bluetooth Loss after sleep mode

USB Eject and Bluetooth Loss after sleep mode

Running Win7 on Asus EeePC 1000H netbook. After coming out of sleep mode, I often lose my bluetooth mouse connection and I always find that Win7 will no longer release any USB drive that is plugged into the laptop.

Deleting the bluetooth entry for the mouse and then adding it again seems to work, but its a PITA. I also note that when adding a bluetooth device Win7 always connects to the MS driver database and downloads the latest driver - so it appears to be a driver issue?

Nothing fixes the USB drive eject problem but a shutdown.

Both work fine prior to sleep mode.

Anyone have any ideas?

Windows 7 64 bit
Possible Fix

Had the same thing - after sleep mode, it was like the bluetooth dongle was gone.

This is what worked for me...

Search for Power Options > Balanced - Change plan settings > Change advanced Power Settings > USB settings > USB selective suspend setting > Chnage enabled to disabled

Good luck!
