I have a BCM943602CS(3 antennas) with a M.2 NGFF Adapter. In Monterey I have to stop and start bluetooth after wake.

3 antenna means it's probably a BCM94360CS, not CS2.

BCM94360CS2 has two antennas.

I don't know if the BCM94360CS is still fully supported in Monterey.

While we wait for the bluetooth fixes. This is how I got mine working perfectly again.

  1. Install SleepWatcher 2.2.1 from https://www.bernhard-baehr.de/
  2. Edit the rc.wakeup file and append to the end:
Code:
sleep 5
pkill bluetoothd

Now when the computer wakes up from sleep. it will run rc.wakeup script.

:clap:

Hi Yomiro. After I updated to Monterey. My Bluetooth work so bad ( BCM94360 ). After sleep/wake. Magic mouse can move but can not scroll. Sidecar not work after sleep. I know that is problem by bluetooth. I read something like Apple have something change about bluetooth at Monterey.
I read your comment. Now Im trying with ur way. But I dont know how to check SleepWatcher is working. I add your code to rc.wakeup with location at /etc/rc.wakeup :
Code:
sleep 5
pkill bluetoothd

But nothing happen after sleep/wake. Bluetooth is not reset.

Can u show me tutorial, how u can install and work with sleepwatcher

Thanks

The instructions are included with sleepwatcher. Read the manual.

To see if sleepwatcher is running:

log show -last 1000|grep sleepwatcher

If the daemon is running you should see it in the log. Else you did not install it correctly.

I installed sleepwatcher. But still can not restart bluetooth. Maybe my rc.wakeup file is wrong. Can you share me your rc.wakeup file ??? Thanks you
