Disable Bluetooth On Linux

Posted by Weston Ganger

If you don’t use any Bluetooth peripherals then saving battery is probably the priority. Heres how to disable Bluetooth on startup.

Just edit /etc/rc.local and add this before the last line (exit 0):


# /etc/rc.local

rfkill block bluetooth

# if you have a thinkpad then you may need this line too
echo disable > /proc/acpi/ibm/bluetooth

exit 0
