    Bluetooth: Not Available problem on MBP
    Hi Guys,
    I just would like to seek help from you regarding a "bluetooth: not available" problem I'm experiencing on my macbook pro 13.
    A reboot of the device does not correct it.
    Anybody experienced this problem? Any insights?

    Try a SMC reset.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Just to add, I too experienced this issue yesterday, and I believe it was a result of not shutting down my MBP for several days, only putting it to sleep.

    Once I shut it down after restarting it twice didn't work, once switched back on, it was all back to normal. Just thought I would share my fix.

    thank you for all your inputs. SMC did not work for me.

    as was about to surrender that it is a hardware issue, i tried to do one thing. i plugged my mbp to inline power before turning it on. i don't do this before, as i was always relying on the battery. bluetooth is now working!

    i further troubleshoot. i found out that whenever i shut down my mac without first disconnecting my bluetooth mouse, bluetooth problem comes back up. and after powering it up with the power cable now connected, bluetooth comes back up again.

    i would appreciate any thoughts shared about this.
