    When my computer is plugged in I tend to always use the bluetooth. When It's unplugged I don't use it to save power (and other reasons). Is there a way to set up bluetooth to turn on automatically when the power is plugged in and turn off when it's not?

    (Sorry if a thread exists but I did do a search)

    Um.... it's a single mouse-click. Why spend time automating something that's already so quick and easy?

    Thanks for the insight but that doesn't answer my question. Obviously I know it's not difficult to turn on and off, but I tend to forget about it and for some reason I get a lot better battery time when it's off. So instead of stating the obvious you could have just said that you believe the answer is no.

    I appreciate both perspectives in this thread. You should contact Doug's Applescripts.

    Thank you, once again, you're just a massive heap of help. Maybe you could go find a thread where your input is useful.

    I did that search already, and while I didn't go in multiple pages, I didn't see a solution that didn't include putting in code. That's not what I'm looking for.

    So once again, without sarcasm or telling me not to be lazy, is there a program or built in solution that will do this for me. If the answer is no, then that's fine. If the answer is yes I would love to hear about it.

    The very first link in the search results has your answer. Take the time to actually read.

    I would assume in Automator. Don't know the exact script though.

    I dunno what you see, but when I click your "I'm an ******* so here let me do this for you because I like being an *******" link, that page isn't there. At least it isn't there for me. I'd upload a screen capture but it makes no difference.

    But thank you for answering my question. I truly appreciate you helping me out (that link is exactly what I was hoping somebody would throw my way) and I appreciate you letting me know to ignore anything you post for now on. =)

    Has anybody used this program and set it up to do what I'm looking for? It doesn't seem to have many options under settings and I cannot get it to turn on and off automatically based on the power cable being plugged in.

    ggjstudios, please go be annoying in another thread.
