I'm running Fedora 8 (F8). The hardware support is nearly perfect under F8 in that the only thing missing were the accelerated video drivers for my nvidia video and that's not Fedora's fault. But if it helps to list:
Dell Inspiron 8600 with 2.0GHz, 1.5GB RAM, 160GB PATA, nVidia Go5650 w/ 128MB, Intel Wireless 2200, Dell Bluetooth device and a bunch of other devices that are well supported too. I am also using a Logitech v270 bluetooth travel mouse.
Back in Fedora Core 6 days and Fedora 7, the mouse was working perfectly, but I needed to set it up running under "hidd" rather than using other means in the bluetooth configuration. I liked this better, actually, because once this was set up, it never failed and I had access to the mouse under "gpm" if I wanted/needed for any reason as well as during boot-up and the login screen.
But now that mouse setups seem to be exclusive to other-than-hidd methods, not only am I limited as to when I can use my mouse, but it also falls asleep and doesn't wake up some times. I have found the most effective way to bring the mouse back into communications with the laptop is to turn the mouse off and back on again and possibly move the mouse or click a button... but the power cycle is necessary or it just seems to be disconnected.
I think it's important to note that before, I *NEVER* had this problem. If it's possible, I'd like to go back to the old way unless there is a fix for the problem I just described. I'd like access to the mouse BEFORE I log in as a user and during boot up as before with Fedora 7 and FC6.
