I've got a problem with the Bluetooth settings in OS X Lion.


If I go into System Preferences > Bluetooth and untick "Discoverable" so that it's off, if I click on Show All to return to System Preferences and then click on Bluetooth again, "Discoverable" is ticked!


So basically there's no way to stop your Mac from being Discoverable via Bluetooth. This to me seems like a bug with Lion, because I never had this problem with Snow Leopard or Leopard.


Can anyone test this to check that it's not just me?
