T430 bluetooth mouse freeze, requires stop/start of bluetooth radio to fix

Hi,

Several times a week, my bluetooth mouse will freeze.  I can still use the touchpad or the red dot.  Fix is to Fn+F5 and stop and start the bluetooth radio.  Looking in Lenovo System Update, I can see the Bluetooth driver is a recent install and is version 6.5.1.4500 for Windows 7 [32/64].

 

Mouse is Targus bluetooth mouse, model: AMB09US

 

Thanks

I had a similar problem with my T430, the bluetooth mouse would freeze sporadically for a short time. The problem was gone, when I upgraded the RAM from 4 to 8 GB.

Give it a try

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion.  I already have 8 GB of ram.

You might have a look at this.  Seems to have corrected my issue on a T430u  http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2010/01/bluetooth-mouse-losing-connection-no-more/

Following this link, I read around and did what others did.  I disabled the ThinkPad power management feature for the Bluetooth radio.  After about a week, no problems yet.
