Re: script to turn off services

rather than use service <servicename>  I would use
/etc/init.d/<servicename> status

try /etc/init.d/bluetooth status.  That usually gives you back a string
which tells you if it is running or not.

Then you can call /etc/init.d/bluetooth stop  and chkconfig bluetooth

But I  kind of agree with the other guy about not bothering to check
cause turning something off thats already off isn't an evil thing.

Why do you care what state it is in if you know you want it off?
Doesn't something simple (albeit parts may be unnecessary but
shouldn't cause any harm) like

for u in "list of unneeded services"; do
  service $u stop
  chkconfig $u off

work ok?
