I have a Microsoft Mobile Memory Mouse 8000 paired to my notebook under Windows via Bluetooth. However I have a Linux installation as well (openSUSE 12.1) and I thought I could make that mouse work for both system, since both of them shares the same Bluetooth receiver. Also whenever I move the mouse while it's in Bluetooth mode, the system detect it's connection attempts, and asks for a pairing key.

Is there a way to do this with a Bluetooth device?—It would be awesome!

I think I did it, but I need to test it first. – Adam L. S. Apr 29 '12 at 16:12
Did it work? If yes, please submit an answer to your question. – Georg Schölly May 9 '12 at 14:09
Sadly, no. It required to pair the mouse each and every time.—The idea was to pair it under Linux, where it gives a pairing number to the device, (like 0000) and then pair it with Windows. Unfortunately this didn't keep it paired up in Linux. – Adam L. S. May 10 '12 at 14:20
