    Default M1210 - Turn off Bluetooth? How?

    New install of Vista Ultimate on M1210. The Bluetooth driver seems to be setup fine and the icon shows but I see no way to turn it off as I had before with the defualt Dell Vista install. Is there some utlity for this so it can be easily turned on and off from the icon?

    Right-click on the bluetooth icon and select "turn bluetooth adapter on/off". It worked for me on a clean Vista Ultimate 32-bit installation (My XPS M1210 originally came with XP Pro).
    Macbook Pro: Intel Core 2 Duo / 4GB / 64 GB OCZ SATA-II SSD + 250GB Toshiba / GF 8600GT / BenQ 22" + Acer 22" Full HD.
    Desktop: C2D Q6600 / 2x GeForce GTX 280 SLI / MSI P7N2 Diamond / 4GB DDR3-1866 / LG 32LG80FR Full HD + ASUS 22" Monitors.
    Backup: 200GB @ WD My Passport + 250GB @ Thermaltake Max 4 + 250GB @ Transcend StoreJet 25P.

    That is the issue, I no longer have that option after the clean install. Perhaps it is the driver I am using, I believe it was the default one that Vista installed. Which driver are you using?

    No, by default Vista seemed to add one. Should I use the Dell one instead?
