    Autostart Bluetooth?

    From looking around online, I seem to be the only person who would *like* bluetooth to start automatically on boot. ~90% of the time, I use my laptop as a pseudo-desktop, connected to an external monitor, with bluetooth keyboard and mouse. I can turn on bluetooth graphically and with Fn+F12, how do I add it to my start-up applications?

    Cheers,
    Dave

    I believe there's a setting in the BIOS somewhere where you can set Bluetooth to come on automatically. We have it set to off on boot to save battery.

    Since it's a BIOS feature not linked to Ubuntu, you wouldn't be able to add it to your startup applications.
