@AnxiousInfusion actually my bluetooth doesn't persist through restarts since I have to disable it every time I turn on my laptop :/ (notice that I'm using Rebecca).
@ratisbona that's why I used the word "optional": You may have your bluetooth turned on/off every time you turn on your PC depending on your choice.
@Hammer459 If bluetooth is on, that means that there are threads/processes constantly waiting for bluetooth signals, and that requires a few CPU (not much, but since you can save some CPU resources, why not going for it?)
It shouldn't be that hard to make (maybe after booting into mint, running a command to read your bluetooth's last state?)
Some keyboards or mice may need bluetooth. But as BT has it's security issues, and most users don't need it, I support disabeling it by default.
Not that Bluetooth uses any measurable CPU unless there is traffic.
But I can agree that there is little need for Bluetooth to be enabled by default, unless you select that.
