Default Turning BT off. How? - 03-22-2009, 10:58 PM

Ok. I've been searching and have been searching around on this forum and couldn't find an answer. My question is:

Is the reason why I can't turn off BT because they haven't come out with a version of DellEFI yet that will do it?

I don't want to disable it in the BIOS because then it won't work at all. I use my Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mighty Mouse and sometimes when it's in my book bag the wireless keyboard will be paired to the Mini when I don't need it.

**** I use it to write my school paper since I type way considerably faster on a spaced out keyboard.

I see a new version of DellEFI came out. Is there a way I can check what version I have? Thanks.

Dell Mini 9 RED | 1.6GHz | 10.5.7 OSx| 32GB SD Card + 32GB SSD | 2GB RAM | 802.11B/G/N | BT |

I would like to know the same thing. When I open System Preferences > Bluetooth, "On" is checked and grayed out.
