http://ubuntuforums.org – I'm running Jaunty with bluez 4.32 on an Asus A8JS notebook. Every time I connect my Targus AMB02US bluetooth mouse, it takes about 5 seconds between pressing a mouse button and the moment the pointer starts responding to mouse movements. It doesn't matter if it's the first connection after system boot or if I'm bringing the mouse out of sleep mode. After the mouse finally connects, it works well, without any lag or other problems. If I boot the notebook under Windows XP, the same mouse connects in under one second every time, so I think the hardware is not to blame. Waiting the 5 seconds under Ubuntu to reconnect the mouse every time it goes into sleep mode is a bit annoying. I filed a bug back in May but nobody has even acknowledged it. Is this delay typical? How long does it take for you? (Please say what Ubuntu version and mouse model you are using.) Does anybody know if there is a bluez configuration option that could make the mouse (re)connect faster?
