    Even i faced samed problem.

    It is a great power saving feature in oneplus

    If no devices are connected within 5 minutes the hotspot will turn off automatically.

    However there are situations where you want your hotspot to stay on all the time.

    Hence extra options will be available in Hotspot Settings to keep Hotspot turned on all the time in upcoming OTA update.

    I do have the same issue - interestingly it is also switching off when I actually use it. This is really annoying. Any ways to work around that at the moment? Is there an ETA for the next update?

    I had this, Internet died at home when I was working so I turned the hotspot on, connected laptop, and it still turned itself off

    Yeah. But the Bluetooth tethering seems to be unaffected. Try to use this instead of the wifi hotspot if you can :)

    The problem seems to be that if the hot spot is configured to use WPA2, then the connection manager doesn't recognize that any devices are connected. This is definitely a bug that needs to be fixed.

    Yes I am having the same issue keeps turning off even while devices are connected. We don't we just have the option to leave it on all the time?

    On and off, on and off again, I don't know if this is a T-Mobile problem or a OnePlus3 problem, but it is an annoying problem. I'm working on things and the hotspot just turns off and I have to turn it back on. It's quite annoying.

    If this happened after the update. Change the name and password of the Hotspot. It fixed it for me

    This issue might be a problem caused in the recent WiFi update OTA.

    Possible solutions:
    1) Go to settings > WiFi > Smart WiFi switcher. Turn this off and see if problem still persists

    2) Go to settings > WiFi > Keep WiFi on during sleep > Always. Enable this option and see if problem still persists

    support is suggesting downgrading to Marshmallow but your phone will be reset to scratch.....noticed that the connected device list has to show the phone, laptop, etc. If not, the hotspot will turn off automatically. To bypass it, you have to go into the Set up wifi hotspot option and change name password and AP Bands sometimes for the device to populate in the list of connected devices. Or you can have it open without a WPA key.

    This is the only options that worked for me after trying all the others. I really don't want to hard reset and downgrade to Marshmallow.

    It doesn't remember my same devices and i always have to change the settings.

    I have the same issue but to use internet via device, connect to laptop using usb cable and turn on tethering on device. oneplus3 is really loosing the plot, I love the phone but hate these issues especially when it was fine before update. Getting ready to switch to another brand.
