How to turn off bluetooth so it stays off

Post by MurphCID »

I just upgraded to Mint 20 on my System 76 Darter Pro. To save on battery life, I turn off bluetooth (I don't really need it), but everytime I reboot the computer, bluetooth is turned on again. How do I turn it off so that it stays off until I turn it on again? Is there a switch I am missing? I use the bluetooth icon to turn it off. So anyone have any ideas?

System Settings>Bluetooth>Note on off switch in upper left. Shut it off.

I do, it turns itself back on each time I start up the laptop, that is my issue.

I think I found this on this forum.
Works for me.

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl disable --now bluetooth.service
