bluetooth not working after resume on netbook

OS 12.3 / netbook:

when resuming from suspend mostly bluetooth is not working.
“systemctl (re)start bluetooth.service” does have no effect in that case

after the next resume from suspend it mostly becomes alive again by itself.

does anyone have an idea how dying of bluetooth on resume could be prevented, or how it could at least be started by hand?

There are a numner of bug reports regarding bluetooth issues after resume, and a recent thread discusses similar behaviour

Upgrading the kernel may be a viable solution for you (even with openSUSE 12.3).
