Turn off bluetooth?

Hello,

Does anybody know how can I turn off my bluetooth device?

Normaly I could do this by following the suggestions from the program powertop (LessWatts.org - Saving Power on Intel systems with Linux). But this doesn’t seem to work anymore.

I’m using opensuse 11.1 (gnome)

Thanks

Fn/F5 should toggle it on and off.

I know what you mean, I have a button to turn off bluetooth. But it only works in windows. So I am looking for another way.

Yast system
/etc/sysconfig Editor

hardware
bluetooth
start services: no
daemon enable: no

thank you very much
