Hi y'all,

I'm new to mac-forums so I hope I posted it in the correct section. I've searched for other threads regarding my problem but found none. If I oversaw it, please notify me and I'll do what I can to delete this one (not yet figured out how, but that's irrelevant).

Often I leave my MacBook Pro 13" on overnight to e.g. finish a download which takes a while. Now in the morning I realized the power plug wasn't connected and it turned itself off due to no battery life left. I charged and awakened my MacBook but somehow the Bluetooth function seems to have turned itself off. Though in the menu bar at the top is still written "BT: On". At times if I try to actually use BT it prompts me with the message "BT is turned off, do you want to turn it on?". The same counts for BT preferences and System Profiler, both show that BT is turned off.
However, if I try to check the box to turn (in BT preferences) it on it stays checked for like half a second but then unchecks itself again. I am absolutely sure that I did not click twice, neither clicked without noticing.
Does anyone have an idea to solve this? Restarting won't work.


Sorry for the novel like length, but I wanted to give as much info as possible since I thought it might be useful

Hey thanks! Just did it, and it all works fine again
Another question though; my issue is now solved so is it expected from me that I delete this thread (as is the case in most other fora) or do I just leave it like this?
Anyway, thanks for your help!
