I have 3 computers, one on Windows 7, the other on Windows Vista, the last one on MacOS Snow Leopard, connected onto a KVM switch. On that switch, I have a BlueTooth USB dongle that is used to connect my BlueTooth mouse.

When switching back and forth from one computer to another one, especially talking about the Windows one (I didn't test with the Mac), the BT connection has been lost during the switch, because the computer do not see the bluetooth dongle any more, so my mouse cursor is frozen. I have to wait some 10-30 seconds that the computer can see again the dongle, and then the mouse, to be able to use it.

Is there a way to make that BlueTooth detection update faster, so I don't have to wait so long?

PS : I've tried to install the latest manufacturer drivers, but it's worse. I can wait forever before the mouse / dongle is detected again after switch. Windows generic drivers do a better job, so I kept them.

PS2 : The dongle is a Belkin one, the short one (F8T016 I guess, but the reference not visible on the dongle itself)

Sounds like a problem with the dongle more then anything. –  Ramhound Jun 5 '13 at 14:33
    
@Ramhound:do you think so ? Why ? It's the Belkin one, the short one (F8T016 I guess, but the reference not visible on the dongle itself) –  Oliver Jun 5 '13 at 15:49
