Re: Soundlink Revolve + Randomly Turning On
To everyone experiencing this very frustrating issue, I feel your pain.
Although I do not believe that I have found a permanent solution to the issue, I have identified the conditions that causes my own Bose speaker (Soundlink Micro) to constantly turn itself on. Initially, I thought I was going crazy because I knew that I had turned it off and yet it was back on when I came home. Then I thought it was a feature in the new update so I tried messing with the autotimer in the connect app. Then I progressed on to thinking that it was a hardware malfunction after I got it wet a number of times (which it's built to do) and I was so disappointed. After days of wondering wth was wrong with it, I thought about calling in but I knew that support would probably read from a script and frustrate me even more (no offense).
So...here's what I eventually found to be the culprit.... My Windows 10 computer bluetooth. Whenever it is paired with my speaker and the Windows 10 bluetooth radio is turned on is the only time this happens. I also have a Macbook Air, an iPad and an iPhone which are issued by my job. They work perfectly fine with the speaker and do not cause this issue.
Basically, any other device that I use with this speaker that is NOT my HP laptop with Windows 10 does not cause the issue to occur. As soon as I turn my bluetooth radio back on my Windows based laptop, the speaker will constantly turn itself on.
I have scrubbed the internet for any possible software update for Windows to address the issue but I have found none. I have updated the drivers to my bluetooth from the HP site, updated the BIOS, updated the chipset firmware...nothing works. What I have resorted to is simply to go to the system tray and toggle my laptop's bluetooth off whenever I am not using it. Some laptops have an F key up top of the keyboard to do the same thing; but mine doesn't.
I actually use this speaker with my laptop frequently because it amplifies the tinny, lightweight sound of the built in speakers; but I also use it with all my other devices too. However, I have now grown so accustomed to toggling the bluetooth on and off that it's no longer annoying to do so.
I figured I would share because I know how annoying this issue is...so I decided to sign up and post. I hope this helps and that everyone has a positive and productive day!
