Bluetooth stops working after suspend in 20.04

Ask Ubuntu Asked by Vox on December 12, 2020

After updating to 20.04 from 19.10, I noticed a strange behavior of the Bluetooth manager (using it with a mouse). Every time I suspend the session, by closing the lid or otherwise, Bluetooth connectivity goes off. While it is off, the only option I have after relaunching the session is “Turn off” instead of “Turn on”. Also, if I attempt to turn it on in Settings, nothing happens – it just stays off. The button turns blue (on) for a second, then back to gray (off) by itself. The only thing that seems to bring it back to life is powering off the computer entirely; after reboot, it’s fresh at work. This is on a several months old Dell XPS 13 7390 DE which had Ubuntu 18.04 preinstalled.

Nothing like this happened with 19.10 where things worked perfectly well, although I did have trouble with 18.04 before (in that case it wasn’t recognizing my mouse). I have seen a different thread indicating problems may be because of the python version, but in my case it is 3.7.4 already. Does anyone know if there’s a permanent fix to this?

I had same problem in Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04. I solve it with this command:

sudo service bluetooth restart
