Cleaning up my list of stuff that needed to be done on my laptop and I've got one annoyance left: everytime I boot up my laptop (Arch64, gnome 3), the bluetooth-adapter is enabled, and in 90% of the times I have to disable it in order to save battery power.
There are so many files on my system with regards to BT, that I am confused. This is what I did/have:
In /etc/conf.d/bluetooth: DAEMON_ENABLE="false"
In /etc/bluetooth/main.conf: InitiallyPowered = false
In /etc/laptop-mode/conf.d/bluetooth: CONTROL_BLUETOOTH=0
In /etc/rc.conf: DAEMONS=(...@bluetooth...)
In /etc/conf.d/rfkill: RFKILL_BLOCK="bluetooth"
I think I have done everything I could to keep bluetooth from enabling itself with this configuration - did I miss something?
I always thought that disabling the daemon would make bluetooth entirely unavailable, but as it turns out, it doesn't. In fact changing the @ for a ! didn't change anything: bluetooth is still powered and enabled in gnome 3.
