Here's what I used: http://iamjstyle.hubpages.com/hub/Things-You-Must-Do-To-Your-Lenovo-Yoga-2-Pro
Essentially you have to:
1) Make sure you have the latest Bluetooth Drivers and the fastest way was to use Device Manager, right click on the Bluetooth drivers and selectup Update Drive
2) Make sure that Power Management "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power" is NOT selected (Right click on the driver > Properties > Power Management Tab)
ALSO if you want to use bluetooth speakers, then you should disable / uninstall Lenovo Voice if you experience choppy sound on the bluetooth speakers (after making sure you have the lastest drivers).
Hope that helps!

I was finally able to mitigate the horrible experience with the intermittent Bluetooth connectivity with the following method:

Here is how to fix bluetooth:
Go to C:drivers choose bluetooth and delete.
Go to: support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/yoga-series/yoga-2-pro-lenovo/downloads/DS103763
Choose install drivers and download Bluetooth driver for Windows 10
It has happened to me a couple times when Bluetooth would just disappear. I tried downloading a driver through Intel and it would always fail to install. Finally, I found this and Bluetooth is back up and running. I bookmarked the page above so if it happens again I know where to go. Make sure you restart your computer after installing or you won't see bluetooth in your settings!

And that's exactly the problem I stated above. There are several versions of this Bluetooth problem. I have it on my Yoga 2 Pro i7 and not on my Yoga 2 Pro i5. I have updated to the most recent BIOS, updated wifi drivers, updated BT drivers. Finally I can fresh-boot and get the BT to appear and connect. If I let the computer "time out" it not only disconnects the mouse (Microsoft Sculpt mouse) but the BT Icon disappears from the Taskbar, the Bluetooth menu option disappears under Device settings, and the BT folder disappears from Device Manager. The files and folders related to the BT drivers are still on the drive, but the BT simply uninstalls itself until I cold-restart.
Bluetooth driver 17.1.1512.771
Wifi driver 126.96.36.199
So Bluetooth is working only on cold boot after a power down.

I hear your pain I been having the same issue for some time now and completely decided to give up until I seen the post of disabling the power setting within the Bluetooth adapter under control panel - system -device manager - Bluetooth - Intel Bluetooth adapter - power settings
