when you say disable BT, is there a way to toggle this besides in the BIOS? rebooting to toggle this is somewhat annoying... and when i turn it on in the bios, i cannot turn it off in osx- is this normal?

i too am wondering the same thing... mine says "bluetooth: on" but it is grayed out and there is no way to turn it off it seems. Any other way then going into the BIOS? sorry if this is a stupid question - first experience with a mac... thanks

Default Bluetooth Terminal Mod - 08-10-2009, 01:40 AM

Check that thread.

Follow post by HussainX word for word. Your bluetooth toggle will be enabled in OSX.

I'm running 10.5.8 with that mod and I'm getting great battery life. 4-5 hours on my A90
