bluetooth and wifi disable/enable randomly?

Postby derrend on Thu Apr 11, 2013 7:06 pm

I sometimes return to my laptop and find my bluetooth has turned itself on but i never knew what triggered it until now.
The clock here in the UK has just struck midnight and my wifi disabled itself for about 30 seconds, i couldnt get it to turn back on using the cinnamon bar widget, then my bluetooth turned on and then my wifi again.

What could have caused this and how might i make it stop?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions :)

UPDATE

I t seems to have nothinf to do with the time now actually because ive observed it happening more and more often over the past few days, I have posted my system log below in case anyone can see something in there that may help.
