I have a Yoga 11S running Windows 10. My keyboard and mouse are both bluetooth and working fine. I have an adaptor for my Bose audio speaker wich pairs fine but the audio is very unstable. When I pair my Android phone with the same adaptor it works fine. I have checked the adaptor on other Bose devices and it works fine. It's my Lenovo. I've checked all the drivers I can think of. Any suggestions?

It is possible that the bluetooth device is going to sleep occasionally to save power.
Try opening Device Manager, find your bluetooth device (On my Lenovo, it is a Broadcom bluetooth module. Yours may be an Intel). Right click to go to the device properties. Under the last tab, uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" and hit OK.

Thank you for responding. That box is already unchecked and the 2nd box, allowinf device to wake computer, is grayed out. It's a Realtek Bluetooth 4.9 Adapter. BTW: Anyrhing on this computer by Realtek is a pain in the ....
I also have a Realtek Wireless Adaptor which is useless for high-speed internet. If I need my laptop to be connected, it needs to be plugged in with a ethernet cable. That realyy suprised me.

Thanks. I use Lenovo Companion to check my Yoga and don't know enough about Bios to check that. Does the Companion Optimize computer do that or do I need to do something further? If so, I need instructions.

When a new BIOS is out, you just download it, run the .exe file, and follow the instructions, it's easy.
But it looks there is no BIOS update proposed right now, at the download page for the Yoga 11s, I don't know why:

That's where I go from time to time, to check if a new version is out. I don't use the Lenovo bloatware to check for new BIOS or drivers automatically, so I couldn't help you about it, sorry.
So for now, you should just do a complete Windows Update, and hope it fixes your Bluetooth problem.
That's all I know about this problem !

Thanks much for your help. I had looked around for Bios Update but couln't find anything so thanks for the confirmation. Hopefully the new Windows update will help.
