Bluetooth gets disabled on program or window changes

I have an HP tx1320, 2GB RAM, dual core Turion64, 250GB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce
Go 6150 video card, Broadom Bluetooth Radio onPort_#0007.Hub_#0001 (Address
00:1e:37:03:7f:53 HCI version 3.8489 LMP version3.16847), with Microsoft
Bluetooth Enumerator, running Vista Home Premium, Office 2007. Frequently,
when I change to a different window or program changes (not on program
launch), my Bluetooth mouse and keyboard stop working until I move the
onboard laptop mouse and keyboard for a few keystrokes and mouse movements.
After that, it goes back to normal, only to occur again several times during
the day. I have a Crackberry with Bluetooth, generally enabled but not
necessarily talking with my headset, as I generally do not wear that when in
the office. Any ideas?

In Device Manager, on the Bluetooth device Properties, there may be a Power
Management tab with a checkbox to uncheck.

I thought you might have a winner, but that check box was unchecked. I have
looked at the Bluetooth properties of the mouse and the keyboard and found
nothing untoward there, so.......

If you use USB for the Bluetooth device, the USB Root Hub devices may be set
to use Power Management.

Mark--

Thanks. I don't. The Bluetooth radio is onboard the laptop, maybe even on
the motherboard. Just to confirm, I checked the USB devices and what are
there are self-powered, including the Broadcom radio. I am poking around the
Power Management area and have not found anything unusual there, but there is
not an item that delineates Bluetooth, specifically, but does have a wireless
control that is set properly (I only use the Bluetooth mouse and board when
connected to AC and power for running on battery is set properly).
