Keyboard and Mouse unresponsive after a period of inactivity

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, so i’m having a little problem that i cannot figure out,

I’m using a bluetooth keyboard and mouse combo from microsoft on a windows 10 machine, the peripherals work great except if i live them for a little while without activity they kinda disconnect an then,when i want to use them again i have to press a key or something to unlock them before they work again, these takes a few seconds each time i leave any on them alone, and it’s driving me nuts.

 

I’ve already tried to disable energy saving on bluetooth, because these seems like something to save battery, but i wonder if there are other settings somewhere, these does not happen in other systems only on these one.

 

Thank you for the help.

Probably something to do with device firmware is my guess

 

IIRC that's a common thing with ms wireless peripherals

This is kind of inherent to Bluetooth peripherals. My mom's Microsoft surface keyboard (the full-size Bluetooth one) does it too. Very annoying.

Well are the Batteries of the devices fully charged ? If not well then there's your problem, gotta charge them or change out the Batteries. Also how far away are the devices from the USB receiver on the device/the device itself because the range on Bluetooth isn't that long. Also make sure there isn't something in between your Bluetooth Peripherals and your PC or Device like a brick wall or thick furniture that can cause the connection to drop out.

I’m pretty sure that’s a standard feature of wireless/Bluetooth keyboards and mice. It’s meant to save battery life.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

It can't be, because if I connect the same peripherals to my main pc these does not happen. they don't pause if i don't use them. 

It's gotta be some setting somewhere.

The distance is less than a meter, the batteries are new, it is a really strange situation...
