[ubuntu] Bluetooth mouse connects but does not move pointer.

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have am IBM t60 laptop with the "official" thinkpad bluetooth laser mouse. When I connected it at first it was fine, and it also works about 70% of the time - usually a restart will fix it. The problem is that it connects but does not work further then that. I can tell this because the thinkpad has a bluetooth light which blinks whenever their is activity - for example if I move the mouse or click it, the light will blink, which means the bluetooth is connected and the mouse works. However the pointer will not move as a result. Any ideas? (ubuntu 12.10) (Hardware)
