Bluetooth Speaker Powers On While Win 10 System Sleeps

Specs: Windows 10, I5-9400
I'm setting up a new Dell XPS 8930 tower running Windows 10. I'm using a Bose Micro Soundlink Bluetooth speaker until I decommission my Win 7 machine and swap the wired speakers over.

The Bose speaker has both "auto power off" and "auto power on". 20 minutes of no input from the paired device and it powers off. When the paired device is turned on, the speaker turns on and announces it's battery life and the name of the device it's paired with.

I have noticed that the speaker randomly announces it's battery life and the name of the XPS machine even though the XPS appears to be in sleep mode. Maybe it's not random as I've never actually timed the occurrences. I've heard it during the day, in the middle of night, etc. It's a tad annoying.

Obviously the system is waking up enough that the speaker sees it as active. I know that there are background processes that run in sleep mode but what would be running that would activate the Bluetooth, turn the speaker on then stop so that the speaker powers down again?

It would be nice if I could prevent this from happening. Thanks!

Don't use sleep mode for a while, as a plus you save some disk space.:)

Go into BIOS and turn off most 'Wake from' options like Wake from LAN, Wake from keyboard, wake from mouse (still wakes from mouse button but not movement), and anything else that light be causing it.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
