Modify The Bluetooth Power Setting
If your Windows 11 settings are configured to allow the system to turn off Bluetooth devices to conserve power, there are significant chances that you’ll experience disconnection issues when your device is in a low-power state.
Adjusting the Bluetooth power settings resolved the trouble for many people, as commented under a YouTube video. Hence, we turned off this setting on our PC, and restarted it, after which there were no connectivity problems.
Here’s how to modify:
- Open Device Manager > Look for the problematic Bluetooth device > Right-click it > Properties.

The Bluetooth troubleshooter scans and eliminates the issues behind the connection error.
Here’s how to run the troubleshooter:
- Access Windows Settings > System > Troubleshoot > Other Troubleshooters.
- Find Bluetooth > Press Run.
Install The Update For The Bluetooth Driver
Updating drivers promptly is crucial to keep your system’s performance flowing smoothly. It also aids in eliminating system bugs that might have occurred due to previous updates, and it helps in removing any current glitches. We updated the driver to the latest version and got the Bluetooth connection restored to normal.
Disable And Re-enable The Bluetooth Adaptor
Another simple way to fix the Bluetooth connection problems is to turn off the adaptor and then enable it again from the Device Manager.
Here’s how to:
- Access Device Manager > Look for the target Bluetooth adapter > Right-click on it > Disable Device.
- Wait for the disabling process to finish, then again access the Device Manager.
- Expand the Bluetooth > Right-click on the adapter > Enable Device.
Reinstall The Bluetooth Driver
As per our experience, Bluetooth driver reinstallation is a viable solution to this Bluetooth issue. We performed the reinstallation, and it solved the persisting issue on our end.
Here’s how to perform the driver reinstallation:
