    when I turn on mobile hotspot in my Win10 OS Notebook, if no any device connect to the hotspot, it will turn off automatically within 30 minutes.
    May I know how long it can be at "on" status if no any device connect to the hotspot?
    Thank you very much.

    It does that to save power. (and data since it can't use Wi-fi as a hotspot)

    I believe the timeout is either 8, 10 or 30 minutes.

    But how to avoid this timeout.

    To the best of my memory, there is no way to force it to maintain the hotspot. If you aren't connecting another device to it, it will shut itself off to save battery.

    Have a device connected to it constantly.
