Bug Description

gnome-bluetooth 3.2.0-0ubuntu2, Ubuntu 11.10

Whether Bluetooth is on or off is shown by an insensitive menu item, "Bluetooth: On" or "Bluetooth: Off", followed by a sensitive menu item to "Turn Off Bluetooth" or "Turn On Bluetooth". This wastes space.

On the other hand, whether the computer you're using is visible over Bluetooth is shown by a checkmark item, "Visible". If the item is unchecked, its purpose isn't that obvious.

To fix both of these problems, these menu items should be converted to two items that use IDO switches, like indicator-network (not to be confused with network-manager-applet) does.

This is blocked by the inability of application indicator menus to use switches (bug 906040).
