Bluetooth Problems

For some reason every once in a while when i start my computer up, my microsoft bluetooth keyboard/mouse are not working. I'll have to hook up a normal mouse and go into the bluetooth settings to re-add them. Now sometimes they'll be on the list still and i'll have to re-add them then they work, and sometimes they wont be on the list and i'll have to re-add them, what do you think is goin on here?

  6. What model is the keyboard and your motherboard? Which version of Windows and do you have all of it's updates? SP2? are you using a USB hub?
