My point was if you don't USE a daemon/service/application then being 
FORCED to use it is not a good thing. Having Bluetooth available is a 
universal good thing for everyone. But, since I am only wired, then a 
turning-it-off option is also a good thing.

I run a Desktop machine. Having the option to turn off the battery 
monitor is a good thing as I don't have a battery to monitor. No need to 
waste clock-ticks / ram / harddrive space on things I can't or don't 
possibly use. Having the freedom to chose that, for myself, is what I 
consider "The Right Thing". Anything other, personally I consider "The 
Wrong Thing". But, that's just me. Myself, if I wanted my OS to tell ME 
what my machine should run, I'd use Windows. Being an old hard-head, I 
use Linux.

I personally think KDE is busily burying itself into a "shoulds" mindset 
that is not especially "healthy".
...so my anger "intervention" was to RiP it out, screaming like a 
Mandrake Root, then stomping on it's remains a bit by locating any file 
marked KDE and hand deleting it, so I would no longer be angry with by 
own "shoulds". But, I'll admit to becoming old and cranky and set in my 
ways. I'm trying to get better ...really! <grins> Ric
