After a period of ~15-20 minutes of inactivity the mouse will loose
connectivity and will not reconnect when I move it around or press
buttons. It will never loose connectivity if I am using the mouse.

Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000
Ubuntu Gusty 7.10 - Gnome 2.20.1
IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet with integrated bluetooth. 

I am running the stock version of Ubuntu (no changes since install,
except for updates)

I did get the mouse to re-connect just once when I violently pressed
every button in a moment of rage, but that has not worked twice.

the only thing that seems to reconnect the mouse is pressing the connection button on the mouse and typing 
sudo hidd --search
in a terminal.

When I reboot the computer the mouse is automatically detected and
connected. But it still looses connection after a period of inactivity.
