Long mouse reconnect time after sleep (Was: [BTM] Kensington PocketMouse Bluetooth Optical mouse)

Well, the verdict is in, and it is that a 1.5 GHz PowerBook G4 sees the 
same long reconnect times with my bluetooth mouse after waking from 
sleep that I saw with my old PowerBook and a first-generation D-Link 
USB bluetooth module, so it wasn't the module. If I wait about a minute 
after waking from sleep it then reconnects and the mouse works. Pretty 
ludicrous. Do others see this with their bluetooth mice? What about on 
Windows? My old RF mouse could wake up the Mac let alone not having any 
significant reconnect time. Still once connected the mouse works 
beautifully, much smoother than an RF mouse.
