SoundLink Micro power off when connected to Skype (via Auto-off timer)

SoundLink Micro with firmware rel. 2.6.0 works with Skype and Skype for Business perfectly, but one annoying issue prevents using it with a full comfort: Auto-off timer switches it off even in the middle of the talk!

The speaker is presented in Windows 10 as 2 devices (it looks like 2 separate profiles are implemented):

  1. "Bose Micro SoundLink Stereo" - normally defined as a "default device"
  2. "Bose Micro SoundLink Hands-Free" - normally defined as a "default communication device"

The first one is used as a default playback device and Auto-off timer is applied to this device as expected: if no sound during auto-off interval, then power is off.

But activity of second device is not counted thus leading to auto power off even if Skype communication is ongoing! The only way to avoid it is to (temporary) switch off the Auto-off timer.

It is not a proper behaviour. I treat it as a bug in the Firmware. When it will be corrected?
