Folks - I have a frustating issue with ActveSync 3.8.0 and Window XP Sp2. After trials and tribulations with the com port issue I managed to pair, sync and move data around okay. BUT, if I shut down my system and come back maybe the next day, ActiveSync cannot re-establish the connection!

The Connections Settings look fine with Com8&9 being where it should be, and my BlueTooth settings also appear okay, but no connection. The only way I can get things moving again is to use the Get Connected function.

Any ideas??

Thanx for your reply.

I did think of the firewall issue and disabled the xp one via the Control Panel - nil impact unfortunately.

Not sure about the USB issue - will have a look. How would that impact Bluetooth comms?

Is this a bult-in or PC Card Bluetooth? If it is a USB adapter then make sure it is connected directly to a USB port, not a USB HUB. Also check the power management configuration and make sure the OS is not allowed to turn off the device (this is in the Device Manager, scroll to USB Root HUB devices).

It's buit-in. Just as an excercise I went thru and disabled the Pwr Management system for the USB hub devices, but to no avail.
