If you’re like me, little things bother you. When I turn on my bluetooth headset and it connects to my Macbook when its closed/sleeping, I get very frustrated. So I wrote a simple script to fix this behaviour. After running the script below, when you close the lid on your Macbook it will automatically turn bluetooth off. When you open you Macbook it will automatically re-enable bluetooth. Simple 🤓
If you need to install brew/homebrew on your mac then run this:
## Install homebrew /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)" ## IMPORTANT: Once the install finishes run the two commands displayed in the terminal window echo 'eval "$(/opt/homebrew/bin/brew shellenv)"' >> $HOME/.zprofile eval "$(/opt/homebrew/bin/brew shellenv)"
Script to automatically enable/disable bluetooth:
## Install the bluetooth util and sleepwatcher brew install sleepwatcher blueutil ## This creates a file which switches bluetooth off when the macbook lid is closed echo "$(which blueutil) -p 0" > ~/.sleep ## This creates a file which switches on bluetooth when the lid is open echo "$(which blueutil) -p 1" > ~/.wakeup ## This makes both the files runable chmod 755 ~/.sleep ~/.wakeup ## Finally restart the sleepwatcher service (to pickup the new files) brew services restart sleepwatcher
