  • Look in your BIOS, see if you can disable that way. – Mitch May 30 '13 at 17:29

Disable Bluetooth on startup

Source : Is there a power saving application similar to Jupiter?

 sudo nano /etc/rc.local 

And add the following line before exit 0

 rfkill block bluetooth

Save & Exit & Reboot

Your bluetooth is off on startup but you can enable it from bluetooth icon.


To disable it on boot, you'll need to edit this file:

sudo vim /etc/bluetooth/main.conf

And set InitiallyPowered to false

InitiallyPowered = false
