For the bluetooth thing you may want to check your BIOS settings. Mine provides an option to always keep Bluetooth off. – Lekensteyn Oct 1 '11 at 20:48
there aren't any option in my bios :( – Paolo Oct 2 '11 at 10:17

There are two AskUbuntu Questions with good answers which should look at to resolve your query:

  1. How do you start-up in the login screen with Num Lock on?
  2. Can I default Bluetooth to off on my laptop Lenovo T61

but i have lightdm not gdm :( – Paolo Oct 2 '11 at 10:20

I've solved! For bluetooth i've add this line to /etc/rc.local:

rfkill block bluetooth

and for numlock i've installed numlockx and then i've added these lines to /etc/X11/Xsession:

if [ -x /usr/bin/numlockx ]; then
/usr/bin/numlockx on
