Active should be "active", IOW it should look similar to

   Active: active (running) since Wed 2016-08-17 19:56:01 CEST; 20h ago
     Docs: [snip]
 Main PID: [snip]

I never used bluetooth myself and don't suspend/hibernate.

If you run

sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service


sudo systemctl restart bluetooth.service

the status doesn't change to active?

If this should change the status to active, then you could follow this


IOW you could try

sudo apt update && sudo apt install pm-utils
gksudo gedit /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/97restartbluetooth

case "$1" in
    systemctl restart bluetooth.service

sudo chmod a+x /usr/lib/pm-utils/sleep.d/97restartbluetooth

It anyway was just a shot in the dark, since even if the mouse is
"disabled" and for some reason doesn't wake up, you most likely would
see a mouse cursor.

Is the mouse a bluetooth device? What are you using Ubuntu Studio for?
