When I boot my laptop, Bluetooth is on by default:
Is it possible to set it to instead be off when I start up my laptop?:
At @Life's suggestion, I checked out this post. The solution was quite easy and worked like a charm (Thanks, @Life!). In the terminal, I typed
sudo nano /etc/rc.local which opened that file in the nano text editor. Then, above the
exit 0 line, I added
rfkill block bluetooth, like so:
After saving and exiting nano (Ctrl-X, Y, Enter), then restarting my computer to test it out, bluetooth is no longer on by default.
You can disable the Bluetooth service.
sudo systemctl stop bluetooth sudo systemctl disable bluetooth
