    My Gateway C-142XL uses Fn+F6 to toggle Bluetooth. It's my experience that
    there aren't many different makers of certain peripherals. All touchpads,
    for example, use Synaptic's drivers. Perhaps all Bluetooth transceivers
    follow similar lines.

    Choto Cheeta -

    When I follow your directions it says BT is disabled, but it does not turn off the lit-up BT icon in the system tray.

    It used to be that I could right-click the BT icon in the system tray, click disable, and it would change from a bright blue and white to a dull blue and red. Then I could right-click on it, click enable, and it would light up in blue and white again.
