Any advice on how to fix this: if Win 10 goes to sleep, Bluetooth turns off, and I have to reboot to get it back?

No, you don't. Bluetooth will go on Standby because you put your system in Sleep Mode.

That's exactly what sleep mode does, Puts everything connected to your Win 10 machine in sleep mode as well, so that once you Wake your system up the Bluetooth will try to establish connection with the previously Bluetooth connected devices. And if you feel as though "oh no it isn't working!" It's probably having to do with your actual bluetooth devices powering off after a few minutes of not establishing connection with the host Bluetooth device, I.E. the Win 10 device, that it had connection to prior to it being put into Sleep Mode.

~~~~TL;DR, Bluetooth goes into Sleep mode along with your Win 10 machine, but after a period of time , say 5-10+ minutes, your devices connected to your machine, do the same thing. Just wake the machine, BT will turn back on on its own, but you will/may have to power your BT devices back because without having a signal from your Win 10 machine they turned themselves off to save power. see less

This isn't a bug. It's a power saving feature that is built in any device with Bluetooth. Just turn off the sleep mode if you never want the connection to go away but everything else will still be running.

This may involve the BIOS settings of the motherboard. Because every motherboard is different, we can find the motherboard provider for a setting method.
