Every time I leave the XPS13 for about 30-60 minutes, the Bluetooth symbol disappears and the mouse stops working.

I have already tried to install this drivers: https://www.killernetworking.com/driver-downloads/kb/faq/1-killer-1535-1525-1435-in-ubuntu-debian

Also installed this one: https://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/04/drivers/driversdetails?driverId=1JVK3 where I have overwritten these files:

AthrBT_0x00000302.dfu (size 40876) -> rampatch_usb_00000302.bin (size 32940)
ramps_0x00000302_48.dfu (size 1982) -> nvm_usb_00000302.bin (size 1953)

Also tried to restart bluetooth: sudo service bluetooth restart

But its not working until computer restart! Is there a solution for this?


This is a known problem, lots of info at this question. AT least your XPS appears to sleep...mine doesn't, it just suspends, hoping both will get fixed!Edit:you will need to read the comments...

  • That said, restarting bluetooth using the very same command as you mention works for me when mine gets disabled, in fact I have it in an easy-to-type-name script. – B.Tanner Aug 1 '18 at 14:42
  • Unfortunately your link contains no useful info in terms of bluetooth – saitam Aug 1 '18 at 16:02
  • It does if you look closely enough in the comments like I said! Look for for a heading of "Permanent Fix" in one of the answers and then the following comments. – B.Tanner Aug 1 '18 at 19:47

For me the solution was to install the new Kernel, even tough I have updated to 18.04., the Kernel was still, so I updated to 4.17.13 and now everything works fine.

Unfortunately I don't know whether the solution was on to install the new Kernel or a combination of using the driver mentioned above and a few other things I have tried meanwhile.
