Re: The SHAME of the SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker that YOU CAN NEVER TURN OFF !!!
*sigh* I spoke too soon. Forgive me as I work on a cruise ship so my PC behaves kind of strangely when I'm not paying for internet, I'm learning.
So my laptop was actually in it's THIRD Windows Update state for the week. I guess it was downloading them in the background since I hadn't connected to the internet in a couple of days. It was in "Update then Shut Down" mode when I wrote my earlier post, but I had no idea 'til I went to turn it off as I usually leave it in Hibernate. THIS is when this ascribed behavior is most annoying, and it is when it starts waking me up in the middle of the night or early morning. THIS is what happened this week when the **bleep** Micro started speaking at 5:00am, and of course, since it's in Update mode when I open the lid, I can't turn off the bluetooth at all. Of course I couldn't get back to sleep--at least I got to watch the sunrise over the ocean. Meh.
I'm in port in the States this morning for turnaround day and needed to take care of some business online. Turned on the **bleep** PC, and the annoying behaviour is still there.
Sorry to get anyone's hopes up, lol.
As an FYI:
-I don't keep the Micro plugged up, as evidenced by the "battery 80%. connected to xxx" i got this morning. It lives in my porthole (where the bounce back of the metal is AMAZING) 'til it gets to like 20-30%
-I don't have any "apps" (meaning crap I downloaded from the Windows store) on my Windows 10 machine. This is completely the Windows bluetooth.
-I have been keeping up with this thread since the behaviour started when I updated, but Bose has made it so the "downgrading fix" is no longer available. It's definitely a problem on the Bose side.
Even as I type this, the bluetooth connection was reset somehow as I LITERALLY just got the "Battery 80% Connected to XXXXX" announcement again. *sigh*
