    Go into the Device Manager, hardware, choose the Bloetooth device, right click, choose "disable".

    if your notebook has the wireless lan assistant, you can turn of the device without disabling the hardware.

    No it is not. Do you have the HP Wireless Assistant installed ?

    It's the little anntenae icon located on your taskbar (far right).

    If you click on it, you can disable either the WiFI or the Bluetooth or both.

    Won't the HP wireless assistant conflict with Windows' own wireless configuration?
    Also, which saves battery life more - turning off bluetooth using the Wireless Assistant, or disabling it from the device manager?
