Like many other people, I’ve had problems with an endlessly scrolling ‘Disconnecting’ message when my bluetooth modem connection goes down, or fails to dial up correctly.
I accidentally discovered a method for dropping the bluetooth connection properly, and removing the cycling message from the OS X menu bar:
- Get iStat Pro’s free dashboard widget
- Make sure your network connections are displayed when you start Dashboard
- Wait until your connecting goes crazy, and won’t drop the connection
- Fire up dashboard and, in the bluetooth pane on the iStat Pro widget, click the ‘Disconnect’ button twice
Now if only that would help in re connecting ….
