I am stumped.


The Bluetooth service BTHSERV, runs fine when my system is started, my Bluetooth devices all connect and everything is fine.


However if my PC sleeps, upon waking the Bluetooth service no longer functions and no devices connect.


If I try to restart the service, nothing happens it just says trying to stop. The only way to get BTHSERV to stop and restart is to completely reboot the PC.


I ran a scan and all the files on windows check out as okay.


I even have the Bluetooth radio set that it will not turn off to conserve power but this makes no difference.


It appears that the service is the issue.


This is a brand new motherboard, and a fresh install of windows 7 64 bit with all updates.


Small Update: If I put the PC to sleep twice when it wakes up the Bluetooth service starts to work again. This is strange. Must be a better solution though.


Any help is very much appreciated.

My guess would be a damaged or poorly written driver.
