T42 Bluetooth Issue - always off after sleep

Whenever I resume my ThinkPad T42 from sleep/standby the bluetooth radio is off and I have to go into ThinkVantage Access Connections to turn it back on before I can use my bluetooth mouse.  All my IBM/Lenovo drivers are up-to-date, and I have tried turning off and back on the wireless radios in the BIOS.  Anyone have any other suggestions on how I can lift the lid of my laptop and have the bluetooth radio already on and ready for use?  Thanks!

What about the Bluetooth-state after shutting down the computer and turning it on?

Is BT then disabled, too?

 

In that case remove the BIOS-battery for a few minutes. After that the factory-default settings with enabled BT should be active.

I realized I hadn't yet tried restoring the default settings in the BIOS,which worked. Thanks!
