Everytime I start my computer Bluetooth is on. I turn it off. But when I restart my computer it is on again. I don't want to turn it off every time I start my computer. How can I make ubuntu remember the Bluetooth setting from previous session?

These are not options, please suggest something different:

  • Never turn off your computer
  • Remove Bluetooth hardware
  • Permanently turn off Bluetooth
  • Recompile your kernel

Install TLP and enable the setting

DEVICES_TO_DISABLE_ON_STARTUP="bluetooth" 
  • As I stated, I don't want to turn it off permanently. I just want it to rememver its last state before shutdown. – zarax Sep 22 '15 at 19:58
  • No problem, then use RESTORE_DEVICE_STATE_ON_STARTUP=1:-) And by the way: DEVICES_TO_DISABLE_ON_STARTUP is not permanent, you may always switch bluetooth in the panel or command line (bluetooth on|off). – linrunner Sep 22 '15 at 21:18

gksudo gedit /etc/default/tlp and go to line 5 which should read

RESTORE_DEVICE_STATE_ON_STARTUP=0

Change it to

RESTORE_DEVICE_STATE_ON_STARTUP=1

Save, exit gedit, reboot and see if problem is solved

  • In my 14.04 there is no /etc/default/tlp file, what gives ? – heemayl Sep 21 '15 at 21:11
  • @heemayl You probably don't have tlp installed – Jeremy31 Sep 21 '15 at 22:40
  • Which package provides tlp ? I can not seem to find it..Also workaround without installing ? – heemayl Sep 21 '15 at 22:44
  • @heemayl I dont know, try a search for linux tlp, if nothing else you can ask your own question – Jeremy31 Sep 21 '15 at 23:09
