Bluetooth mouse will not be working when you grab it. You can usually get the mouse to wake up again by opening the Bluetooth settings pane in the Control Panel (or by bringing that pane to focus if you already had it open).


Windows is putting the Bluetooth radio to sleep to piss you off save power.

  1. In Device Manager, expand Bluetooth, and bring up the properties of your Bluetooth device.
  2. Go to the Power Management tab.
  3. Clear the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power checkbox.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
