    I was going through the Widgets and noticed a bunch of settings if you select the power control widget. It has exactly the feature I've been asking for and looking for for months now. That is, enable/disable Bluetooth when ext power on/off.

    I have a Droid dock in my car and this allows me to not have to toggle bt on and off now when getting in my car.

    There's some more controls in there as well, check it out if you haven't already.

    Sorry, if you already know this. I'm just excited to have found this!

    Do you have a link for the HoneyGingerComb theme that you're using?

    I use a free app from the market called DockCarSwitches for this. Works great. Good thing about this is you don't have to plug your phone in, just put it in the car dock.

    Yeah that is a good feature, but I have my dock hard wired so its always charging when plugged in. I've used some free apps from the market, but found they themselves running were more of a drain than just keeping BT always on.

    This feature seems to not enable anything additional running in the background.

    I still use Setting Profiles, it is more customizable...but that's a nice alternative if it does what you need. These days, any way we can save resources on our aging phones is a plus. I'm going to need to upgrade soon.

    The first time I saw that was on shadowrom. Its really a nice feature, but I find it useless with the statusbar widget.

    The only thing I wish that the status bar had was a brightness button? Or the ability to mod what buttons are on the status bar. Because I really done ever touch my bt or location buttons.. could totally put a brightness and flashlight app into those to spots and I would be super happy.

    For the brightness button:

    Settings>CyanogenMod Settings>Interface>Notification Power Widget>Widget Buttons

    This has an option for the Brightness and the LED Flashlight.

    If the LED Flashlight button is already selected but not on the widget, just uncheck then check the box again and it will be on there.
