Occasionally I've set up my 15" G4 PB to give a presentation and whipped out my SE T637 to control things only to discover the Bluetooth on the Mac is not on--so I have to go over to the Mac and turn it on. I've always wanted to turn on BT on the Mac with the T637.

I've noticed that if I turn on BT on the phone and then have the phone search for a device, during the search the BT indicator on the phone shows the two arrowheads (see attached) that are on during a connection. If no connection is made to another BT device, the arrowheads disappear.

A signal to connect is sent by the phone during this time, and I wonder if the search time when the arrowheads are showing doesn't create a window of opportunity for the phone to launch a "switch" on the Mac to turn on BT if the Mac's BT isn't already on.

Attached is just such a script, sent to me by Mike Piontek <no spam> who created the BT on/off widget.

If BT on the Mac is on and BT on the phone is on, but they're still not connected, a brilliant person posted here before how to get them connected. See http://www.salling.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2668&highlight= .

I use this set-up frequently and just wonder if there's a way to use Clicker to go one step further to actually turn on the Mac's BT to begin with.

Thanks.
