    I found it to connect if I attempt to sync (hit the red button in the back or 1 & 2 together) as windows is coming up. When the bluetooth drivers load during startup, they start searching for devices, and the wiimote has to be already flashing its LEDs waiting for connection when that happens. I've found this only works during a clean boot, and does not work with coming out of hibernation.

    with a dock or something, maybe it can auto power it up and start looking for peering when the computer comes up. need a physical thing to make the wiimote starting flashing its LEDs, looking for the connection.

    Yeah, but connectivity issues and lack of hibernation means it's too gimmicky to really be useful. It needs to be manually synced every time you start the car.

    Only if you hibernate your carputer.

    Shut down / Fresh boot - Wii remote is a great tool.
    hibernate - Wii remote is a pain to connect everytime

    what about standby?

    i used to have my computer hibernate when i turn off the car, now i just let it go to standby. (faster boot and shutdown). will the WII have problems with this too? what if i leave my bluetooth device on with power ?
