hotspot turns off for 10-15 seconds every 5 minutes

I have an M2 running flyme 4.5.3i and the hotspot function stops streaming data to my laptop for about 15 seconds every 5 minutes. Under “portable hotspot” in settings i see a message that states “Hotspot will be turned off, if no device connected in 5 minutes”. i think this might be related, but i can’t find a way to disable it.
Any ideas?
thanks :)

bump, would really like to fix this problem :/


I am pretty sure the 5min auto-disconnect feature is causing this. At first I thought it’s cool, and would save loads of battery, but oh well, it sure shouldn’t be taking down your connection…


I might root it and switch to android, probably worth it anyway.

Looks like your connection to Meizufans was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
