Hi,

How can I disable Bluetooth radio antenna (that green light under the screen)?

I just use WLAN only.

First, I am glad you found a fix. Second - There is something wrong, I think. Fn-F5 allows you to select either Bluetooth or WLAN. I turned my BT on and off (not using), while my WLAN was on and I was posting my prior post.

Take a look at the Lenovo support site for your model and look for appropriate drivers (Hotkey, Blue Tooth, etc). .... JDH
