I had ThinkPad T61p pre-loaded with Vista, which I then upgraded to Windows 7 RTM. During all this time, integrated
Broadcom BlueTooth has been working perfectly and I never had to turn it on manually with Fn+F5 - it was turned on initially after boot, and it was also always turned on after coming up from sleep mode.
Windows 7 however got badly screwed up at some point, and I reformatted the machine and did clean new installation of Windows 7. I re-installed Lenovo drivers for BlueTooth adapter, and it does work, however every time the computer boots up or emerges from sleep, BlueTooth radio is powered off. Every time I have turn it on manually using Fn+F5 before I can use BT mouse, which is very annoying.
The question is what steps do I need to take to make BlueTooth power on automatically ? I know I can do Fn+F5 manually, but that's not a solution.
Whatever Lenovo did when they customized Windows, made BT power on automatically, and that was also carried over by Windows 7 upgrade, but was lost after clean install.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I am having same problem!! My T400 came with bluetooth & windows 7, but I still experience exactly the same thing. I have tried copying shortcuts to hotkeys & such into startup, but no luck yet in making it automatic. Someone please help!
