RFID key card temporary fail... normal or weird?

I've had no trouble with the RFID key card. Then a couple of days ago, the car wouldn't recognize it as shown in this clip:

I tried the RFID card; it failed; I went and got my phone, and turned off BlueTooth so I could film the fail. Then turned-on BT and the car opened (thankfully!). Since then, no problems with the RFID card.

Does the car go into a kind of deep sleep where bluetooth unlock works, but RFID card doesn't work?
