Iโ€™ve tested this and itโ€™s persistent across reboots.

Click the bluetooth logo between the keyboard and battery icons on the system tray. Then click the โ€œBluetooth ONโ€ selection and it changes to โ€œBluetooth OFFโ€:

After comments I discovered that Ubuntu 18.04 with Gnome interface doesnโ€™t work like Ubuntu 16.04 with Unity interface.

The solution is to edit /etc/default/tlp and find:

# Radio devices to disable on startup: bluetooth, wifi, wwan.
# Separate multiple devices with spaces.
#DEVICES_TO_DISABLE_ON_STARTUP="bluetooth wifi wwan"

Edit the last line to read:

DEVICES_TO_DISABLE_ON_STARTUP="bluetooth"
