How to make Bluetooth NOT visible?

Post by JoshMcCullough »

My laptop (Razer Blade Stealth / Killer Wireless/BT) is visible via Bluetooth even when the Bluetooth app/applet is not open. How do I make it not visible unless I open the Bluetooth config/setting dialog to add/pair a device?

This may not be quite what you are looking for (disable bluetooth entirely at startup). Then again, maybe so. :)
