I have a Toshiba Satellite L640 laptop, running Windows 7 32-bit. Whenever I turn off Bluetooth (using the Fn+F8 shortcut), it stays off for only a few seconds, then turns on again. How can I resolve this?

Bluetooth-related software on the laptop:

  • SL640_Win7_Bluetooth_Stack_for_Windows_by_Toshiba_v7.10.09
  • SL640_Win7_Bluetooth_Monitor_v4.04

How exactly are you turning bluetooth off? And how did you establish that it was active again? – David Schwartz May 31 '12 at 11:01
I turned on and off using FN + F8. There are details about the wifi and bluetooth, so I can know that the bluetooth is switched on or off – Rhiena Rava May 31 '12 at 11:10
@RhienaRava - Have you ever synced the a bluetooth device to your computer? My guess there is a problem with the shortcut. Disable the device through windows not the shortcut. – Ramhound May 31 '12 at 11:39
look into all applications and peripherals that use bluetooth to communicate, one of them is most probably switching it on again – Shekhar Jun 7 '12 at 9:57
