    Hi everyone.

    My bluetooth icon has all of a sudden stopped showing up in the menu bar, and it isn't visible in system preferences either. I have tried a restart with no luck. Any ideas how I could recover this?

    Go to System Preferences>Blue Tooth. Then down the bottom click the box that says "Show Bluetooth Status in Menu Bar".

    I've seen it happen many times to some of the older aluminum MBP's. Usually a shut down/restart fixes it, but if it continuously happens then there may be a problem.
