 Post subject: How to disable bluetooth on NC10 with Ubuntu 10.04?

Hello. After buying my NC10 I have used 9.10 on it without really bothering to disable the bluetooth to save battery power (as much as it might save). I never have any need for the bluetooth function.
Today I installed 10.04 (clean install, not upgrade), formatting my root partition. Now I do want to tackle the bluetooth problem.
I have noticed that you can turn it off from the bluetooth manager applet, but it is back on after restart. I know you can disable the applet in System-Preferences-Startup Apps, but I think that would only disable the applet, not the actual bluetooth. The NC10 doesn't have separate indicator light for bluetooth but other people with notebooks have reported that after disabling the applet their bluetooth light is still on.
Googling around I did find that sometimes you can do:
sudo echo disable > /proc/acpi/ibm/bluetooth

but on my NC10 I get a message that that file doesn't exist.
Is there any way to disable the bluetooth so it is actually OFF and doesn't draw power? And hopefully it would be a one time fix, not something to do on every boot.

Thanks.
Darko.

If you are using samsung-tools, then start its configuration dialog ('System'->'Preferences'->'Samsung Tools Preferences') and set 'Disabled' to initial status for bluetooth.
