Bluetooth mouse randomly stops working

#1 Post by wim4rk »

Hi,

I really need some help with my bluetooth mouse: Logitech MX master 2S. It basically works excellent, but it randomly stops working. The bluetooth in my task manager says it's still attached, but it doesn't work at all. If I disable Bluetoth and then switch it on again, everything works all right. For a while.

So, I figured it could be a power saving thing, so I did

Code: Select all

$/sbin/iw dev wlp2s0 set power_save off
:

Code: Select all

olov@helm:~$ /sbin/iwconfig
eno1      no wireless extensions.

wlp2s0    IEEE 802.11  ESSID:"D________p"  
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:5.54 GHz  Access Point: C6:EA:1D:F4:05:C6   
          Bit Rate=780 Mb/s   Tx-Power=22 dBm   
          Retry short limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=46/70  Signal level=-64 dBm  
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:64   Missed beacon:0

lo        no wireless extensions.
This has bothered me for a while, and I can't solve it. I've been googling a lot, but no-one seem to have had this issue exactly. There's been related errors but no sollutions has worked for me.

Code: Select all

Solved this myself.

`$ /sbin/iw dev wlp2s0 set power_save off` does the job, after a good reboot. :oops:

[Unsolved] Bluetooth mouse randomly stops working

Nope, I got fooled. It just worked an extra long while. It stopped again after a couple of hours. No idea where to go from here.
