Ubuntu/Debian: Bluetooth disabled by default!

I found this really useful post here:
If you ask me, it would be best if GNOME remembered the last state of the devices across reboots.

"How to set bluetooth radio default off (after booting)?

As superuser edit the /etc/rc.local file add this line before exit 0:
rfkill block bluetooth
This will keep bluetooth turned off when you boot/login but you can still turn it on at will with the bluetooth applet in the panel!"

Please make sure rfkill is installed:
sudo apt-get install rfkill
