Hi,

Thanks.

From a terminal
PHP Code:
su -'systemctl stop bluetooth.service'
su -'systemctl disable bluetooth.service' 
I assume Fedora 15?

Didn't work. It's still listed as "on". I'm on Fedora 15 by the way.

Still listed as "on"? What tells you that, systemctl status bluetooth.service?

Code:
[glenn@phenom15 ~>$ sudo systemctl stop bluetooth.service
Password: 
[glenn@phenom15 ~>$ sudo systemctl disable bluetooth.service
rm '/etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.bluez.service'
rm '/etc/systemd/system/bluetooth.target.wants/bluetooth.service'
[glenn@phenom15 ~>$ sudo systemctl status bluetooth.service
bluetooth.service - Bluetooth Manager
	  Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bluetooth.service)
	  Active: inactive (dead)
	  CGroup: name=systemd:/system/bluetooth.service

The service is dead but the device is still listed as on (in the top right corner of the screen).

Re: disable_bluetooth_startup

That's a problem. Arcane commands from terminal to control basic laptop features.

I suffered from this problem too, but because I am mostly plugged into the AC outlet, I didn't research the solution. I use the Bluetooth radio in my laptop on occasion, but I don't want this rarely used device draining my battery when I am unplugged from the mains. The method to set the default behavior shouldn't be so obtuse.
