    If not being used, how much energy does Bluetooth consume just being on? Trying to figure out if worth it to turn it off regularly.

    The problem with that in my reprieve is that turning off the BT interferes with connected standby ending in more power use.

    All I know is that the drivers start failing and you start seeing weird thing happening after coming from standby mode. If you look in event newer you will find a lot of hardware errors.

    Less than LED, which lights if front camera turning on during video call in Skype. Just forget and ignore it.

    Hardly any. Plus you'll be annoyed with all the times that you go to use your pen and go "d'oh!!" and have to re-enable BT.

    I also vote with these guys, to just leave it on.
