I have a Dell Inspiron with Elementary OS installed on it and the bluetooth keeps switching on and off at random intervals. The wireless card I have is a DW1705 by Qualcomm. I had the same issue with ubuntu, while it was fine on Windows, I hope someone can help. Cheers. I am new to linux and have only had it for four hours.

Welcome to the forums, for security bluetooth should only be on when you have two machines in connection, as Elementry is Ubuntu based the best I can find is this article

Cheers but the issue isn't autoconnect, instead my bluetooth switches on and off at repeated intervals with no external input to it, which renders my bluetooth mouse useless. It appears to me that the driver installed fails to read the bluetooth adapter at certain moments because whenever a cycle takes place, the bluetooth page asks me to connect a dongle, instead of just asking me to switch bluetooth on.
