Hi,

Is that possible to turn off wifi and bluetooth when running MBP on battery? I couldn't find any switches in GNOME's NetworkManager. 'iwconfig wlan0 txpower off' doesn't work either.

Thanks for help.

sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth stop should kill bluetooth

To really do this though, you need to unload the modules for bluetooth and wifi.

How would you start it again afterwards? substitute start for stop? Thanks!
