There's a big chance here that you're bluetooth mouse and keyboard wont work with Windows Vista since not all device s have driver for Vista to double check that it will be better if you check the manufacturers web site to see if there's a driver for Vista for that keyboard and mouse and if there is download it and the that should resolve the problem........

Try updating the device drivers for you bluetooth mouse and keyboard. I dont know what SP2 changed by way of bluetooth or input devices but, I do know it had a number of security updates. If you want to give it another try...maybe a resync of your bluetooth may help as well.

Logitec V270 bluetooth mouse freezes


I found no solution but plenty of similar complaints on the V270 on other than just Vista machines. I will suggest finding another model mouse and check it for Vista compatibility before buying.
I am using a Logitech M-RBB_DEL4 mouse made for Dell, it's bluetooth and works flawlessly on my XP machine along with the keyboard it came with. I will try the one I just ordered on my Vista machine when the BT Keyboard and Mouse arrive.
