Blue Tooth Mouse loses connection after some idle time
 
Is there a way to prevent linux from disconnecting from bluetooth
mouse after some idle time?
System -> Preferences -> Bluetooth
System -> Preferences -> Mouse
have no settings for such behavior.
Also, System -> Preferences -> ScreenSaver is not configured to
hibernate or put anything to sleep after idle time.
Could this be a feature built-in to the blurtooth mouse itself?

The mouse is generic, unbranded, made in China.

Most likely it's due to a power saving feature in the kernel.
See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=570291
There are some workarounds in comments 13 and 28.

Yes!!! Thanks!!
I created the scripts as in comment 28 of that page and all is well.
P.S: I am running vanilla 2.6.34.1 from kernel.org.
Seems the bug is still there. Perhaps it will be addressed
in 2.6.35 release.

Cheers,

JD

Don't hold your breath. The problem has been around since 2.6.32
with little sign of action.

Well, must be either a super tough problem,
or very low on the totem pole of bugs :)
