Bluetooth is a wireless technology that enables the communication between electronic devices. It’s often used to transmit data, audio, video, and voice between two or more devices over short distances. In some instances where your Bluetooth isn’t functioning properly, you can turn off Bluetooth on your device through the settings menu.
What is Low Power Mode?
When you’re not using your Bluetooth device, it can go into low-power mode to save your battery. Low power mode means that the device won’t try to connect to any devices, and it may turn off automatically after a set amount of time. To get out of low-power mode, try these steps:
- Try turning on your Bluetooth device. If it doesn’t work, try turning it off and back on again.
- Try restarting your device.
- Try pressing and holding the “power” button for about 10 seconds until the device turns off completely.
- If none of those solutions work, try connecting to a different Bluetooth device or turning off your router if you have one connected to your device.

What Causes Low Power Mode to Turn On?
Bluetooth devices in low power mode disconnect from each other and can’t be joined. This happens when the battery is low, when the Bluetooth device has been idle for a long time, or when it’s turned off and then on again. To fix this, turn your Bluetooth device off and on again, or charge its battery.
The Upside of Low Power Mode
Low power mode for Bluetooth is a great way to conserve power and keep your device functioning. When in low power mode, Bluetooth will only send data when it needs to send data, which can help to avoid connection drops. Additionally, if your device goes into low-power mode due to an absence of an external battery, it can still be used to make local connections.
How to Enable and Disable Low Power Mode
If you’re experiencing Bluetooth disconnects and the low power mode is on, disable the low power mode. To disable low power mode: From the Bluetooth settings screen on your phone or tablet, tap the “Settings” icon. Under “Bluetooth,” tap “Low Power Mode.” Tap “Off.”
If you’re having trouble connecting to your Bluetooth devices, check to see if your phone or computer is in low-power mode. You can usually tell if this is the case by looking for a battery icon on your screen and seeing if it has a red slash through it. If you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, make sure that Airplane Mode is off (you’ll find this option under Settings); alternatively, go into Bluetooth settings on your device and turn off “Low Power Mode.”
