    How do you properly enable/disable bluetooth on the m11x? Talking about any software and/or the device.

    I don't use it and assumed it's probably on by default. Unless it's off until you run the software for the first time? Thanks

    I think fn+f3 enables/disables both wireless/bluetooth

    You could go to Start->Devices and Printers->then right click the M11x and go to the Bluetooth options to enable/disable the bluetooth radio.

    Edit: Ya disabling the wireless disables bluetooth at the same time. Maybe I will see if I can make a hotkey for just disabling/enabling the bluetooth.

    Just disable it via the BIOS (F2 @ startup) if you don't use it. End of story :)

    I normally right click on the Bluetooth icon in the system tray to turn it on or off. Works well for me.
