    Hi,
    I am traveling a lot through Europe. One week ago I started to use my iPad Air as a hotspot, because the battery lasts one working day and that's really good. I used mifis before, but 6h max 8h they can hold, after that, they are empty.

    I have now the problem? That the iPad shut down the hotspot. I don't know when and why
    I have the iPad in my bag.
    I go to settings, fire in the hotspot and all is great.
    I think, when the iphone for example don't use the connection all the time, the iPad shuts down the hotspot. Can I fix that? Any idea?

    Thanks.

    Are you saying that after no use of the hotspot it's is getting disabled?

    It's probably timing out due to inactivity. The following sentence is direct from Apple Support:

    "Your device will stop broadcasting Wi-Fi if you put it to sleep or if 90 seconds elapse and no connected devices use Wi-Fi."
