Question Bluetooth bug- Not Available after sleep? - 07-16-2011, 07:43 PM

Reading through this forum, it seems like I'm just astoundingly lucky or clever; I have a Dell Mini 9 running 10.6.7 beautifully. I have sleep, sound, microphone, wifi, webcam, and bluetooth all functional. I actually use it for work, for Skype, for music (surprisingly loud speakers), and it's the nicest, handiest little thing ever. Any problem I ran into, I've figured out a solution. Except one thing...

When I'm not near a wifi access point, I tether my Blackberry via bluetooth for data. This works pretty well, and 3G speeds are sufficient for most web browsing. However, after sleeping/waking a few times, the bluetooth eventually becomes Not Available. A reboot always fixes it, but I was wondering if anyone else has run into this and knows of a better solution, or even just why this might occur so I can figure out a workaround.

Thanks in advance!

Have the same problem with the 10v and have never been able to figure it out.

One thing that I did find that minimizes the number of times that I have to reboot since BT goes away is that when you come out of sleep, do not touch ANYTHING until the WiFi and bluetooth logos settle. Keys, trackpad, etc. It seems like if I do that the probability that I will get bluetooth back is higher.
