    Bluetooth keyboard goes to sleep

    Microsoft Designer bluetooth mouse and keyboard. If I don't use the keyboard/mouse for a while it takes a few seconds for it to turn on again. So I need to press some keys/move mouse around and wait for it to work again.

    Yes, it happens with all wireless devices to save energy.

    This is really pretty annoying. Is there a way to make the time before they turn off any longer? It's just a few minutes I think

    I have the same issue since upgrading to 20.04
    I did not have this issue when I was on Ubuntu 18.

    MS surface mouse and keyboard.

    there has to be a setting I cant find.

    installed blueman-applet hopping it would have a setting. No luck.

    anything else we can try ?

    Yes I'm on 20.04 also. Haven't found anything. I was using Win 10 mostly for a while and now being back to Ubuntu is starting to irritate me because the keyboard is constantly asleep and I have to wait a few seconds for it to work...

    Anything else I could try? It shuts off after like a minute of not being used and then takes several seconds to start working again. Really annoying
