    sudo mv /etc/init/bluetooth.conf.disabled /etc/init/bluetooth.conf
    and reboot again.
    By creating an override config, you can still start bluetooth manually
    when needed with
    Code:
    sudo service bluetooth start

    Good idea!

    I've looked at System Monitor and noticed that things aren't using resources if you're not using them. I figure the system knows more than I do about what is needed, so I leave it alone except for those extras that I know I don't use; bluetooth, etc. that starts at boot-up.
    Remember When Double-Dog dare ya's and water balloons were the ultimate weapon?

    Also, override file won't get overwritten/modified on upgrades etc. If edit a system file, that will/might happen.

    So override file is much better!

    That's a good point. I always used added extension, and never thought I could restart with out removing the extension, by adding override instead.
    I'll have to try your method. Thanks.
