    Microsoft have confirmed that they are aware of the issues and working on a fix. I have been added to a notification list for an early notice when they have it fixed.

    For bluetooth headsets/audio receivers disconnecting during silence I have found kind of a easy but at the same time stupid fix. Just play a silent/blank mp3 in repeat in Windows Media Player all the time. It will force the bluetooth audio device to keep connected. The Windows Media Player uses almost no recources/CPU, so it shouldn't be a problem for battery life.

    You can download a silent mp3 here for example:

    This is so frustrating. I use a Pure Jongo over Bluetooth to stream music to my AV receiver. It had been a bit of a faff to make it work before, but I had found a method and it was reliable. I hadn't used it for a while and thought I was going a bit crazy when I couldn't make it work. Rolling back the driver has helped, but I have to be fast to get music playing on it otherwise it disconnects.

    It works fine from my Apple devices, both with and without the dedicated Pure App.

    Microsoft - please fix!

    It happens on my SP3 as well. In fact, it also happens on my Acer W700 as well (same configuration: metal body with plastic strip), so I guess its something you cant avoid with this kind of hardware design.
    Its either you go plastic or go with signal challenges.
