Bluetooth keeps searching and chiming

My wife and I both use bluetooth headsets to listen to music on our phones. On my phone, I can turn off the headset and all is as expected, but when my wife turns hers off, the phone keeps searching for the bluetooth device and puts out an irritating chime every minute or two. If she's not in the area where the headset is, it doesn't occur.

Since we both use the same brand headset, it seems pretty obvious that she has some setting different on her phone than I have, but I can't figure out what it might be.

I'm hoping some of you might have a suggestion where I can start.
