If you are not using bluetooth (higher power consumption) you can simply turn it off.

To turn off bluetooth only temporarily, use rfkill:

$ sudo rfkill block bluetooth

To permanently turn off bluetooth create a udev rule:

$ sudo -H gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/50-bluetooth.rules

Then in the empty file, insert these lines:

# disable bluetooth
SUBSYSTEM=="rfkill", ATTR{type}=="bluetooth", ATTR{state}="0"

Save the file and exist.
