    Hi,
    When I put my MBP to sleep (close the lid) and let my bluetooth mouse on, whenever I move the mouse, it wakes it up. It's not a big deal since I can switch my mouse of but I'm a bit surprised that the bluetooth connection remains connected even if OSX sleeps.

    Is that normal ?

    Thanks,
    Tex

    There's a preference for this in System Preferences (can't remember if it's in Bluetooth or Keyboard and Mouse). If you uncheck it then this won't happen...

    It shouldn't wake if you move it, only if you click it.
