Bluetooth is enabled by default, and I don't want that since I rarely use it and it consumes battery.

I know you can enter

rfkill block bluetooth

in /etc/rc.local, which works upon reboot. But the bluetooth becomes enabled again whenever I resume from suspend. How do I fix that?

I aslo need to block Bluetooth after suspend, because of this networking bug that breaks wifi: If bluetooth is on, wifi won't work. — I need to block bluetooth both after reboot and after suspend. – KajMagnus Jun 6 '15 at 7:03
