    I synced my bluetooth mighty mouse and keyboard on the Mac side first and then booted into Windows 7 with updated drivers and both worked.

    This worked like a charm and only took about five seconds to do. Thanks!

    Your welcome, I came across it several years ago now. I recently had to find the old post to use it once again when I reinstalled W7 and lost mouse control.

    A bluetooth state of mind

    Here is something bluetoothy that should cure many of the wireless problems in Bootcamp.

    1. Device Manager - Bluetooth radios - Apple built in Bluetooth - Properties - Driver - Update driver - Browse from computer - Let me pick from a list.
    Pick Apple. Update.
    Still in the Apple Built in Bluetooth go to - Power Management. Don't allow the computer to turn off device to save power. If you do the result is a sleepy device. Ok. Restart computer.

    2. Right click bluetooth icon - Open settings - Options
    Allow Bluetooth devices to find your computer. Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer.

    3. Right click bluetooth icon - Add a device

    4. Turn on your mouse or whatever bluetooth device you want to connect.

    5. Right click the device you want to add - properties
    Wait for the Bluetooth services list to update and from the list choose Drivers for..(HID). Apply. Ok.

    Thanks, this seemed to do the trick for me, question is, how long will it take the Magic Mouse to reconnect to windows when I reboot?

    And, is everyone else lacking control over brightness settings? I see the icon and everything, but nothing happens.

    edit: I saw somewhere that i should try resetting PRAM, will do that after I done downloading TSW beta! That can maybe even solve the issues I've been having with the Magic Mouse and brightness and everything.
    editedit: Resetting PRAM didnt do nothin'.
