MacBook Bluetooth Won't Turn Off

Recommended Posts

The bluetooth on my MacBook (Core2Duo, black, 2 ghz) will not turn off. I have tried going thru the system preference pane where the option for turning it off was greyed out. Also, the menu in the menu bar won't give me the option to turn it off. What is wrong?

I have both admin access and access to the root user.

that is weird ?

I am guessing here. Make sure there is no bluetooth device accessing your mac (or connect to). Also try to fix all your access privilege. The login user account will not have "root" access automatically, maybe somehow your apps is owned by root now.

 

I am just guessing..

 

Oh.. try this, create a new user and see if that work for you.

At least you know if this is account issue or something else.

 

good luck.

try logging in using safe mode, hold shift as it boots, and see if you can fix it then.

I meant that I have root access because I can enable a root user on my mac.

Update: It still won't go off in another account.
