bluetooth mouse not working after sleep

Following is the solution to the problem I was having using a
Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 with my Dell Inspiron 1545
running Windows 7. Others have reported this same problem on Windows
Vista. During sleep or hibernation the Bluetooth Support service is
stopped and not restarted. The solution that worked for me is to
change the startup type to "Automatic."
