I don't use Bluetooth and so want to keep it off in my MBP (2.3 Ghz, 2011, few days old). Whenever I restart, the Bluetooth turns itself back on—something that never happened with Snow Leopard.


Is there a feature I'm missing that I can turn off? In the Bluetooth preferences, by the way, I try to deselect the boxes to turn off Bluetooth when it doesn't detect a keyboard, and I can't. It just selects the box again, and turns the BT back on!


Thanks for any help.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7), 2.3 Ghz, 8 Gb ram, 17"

    Had the same problem, even the behavior you describe with the the checkboxes turning themselves on immediately again.


    Deleting the Bluetooth preferences (located in the library preferences, not the user library) did the trick. It's called After deleting, restart the computer.


    It now works, and I can deselect any checkboxes. I've restarted 3 times since then it stayed off.
