    Boot camp XP bluetooth drivers

    I am trying to track down an new version of the bluetooth drivers for a 13.3" Macbook.

    I recently produced a bootcamp XP image for these MacBooks and discovered that if it is put into standby mode twice say by shutting the lid then on the third attempt it will not standby. I also noticed that the power switch did not trigger a shutdown either and when shutdown from the start menu it did a partial shutdown only leaving a blue screen and mouse pointer. Research showed that it could be bluetooth that causes the problem, this was confirmed by disabling the bluetooth radio in device manager and the bluetooth service then the problem goes away. The suggestion is to use updated widcomm drivers however I cannot seem to find them anywhere now they have been taken over by Broadcom.

    I would be grateful for any pointers to a suitable download location.

    If you have updated to XP SP 3, have you updated the boot camp drivers as well. There is an update to the boot camp download which is required apparently for SP3.
