I disagree with your analisys - in my 901 (BIOS version 1101), the "enable 
bluetooth" setting in the BIOS, and the status of the /proc/acpi/asus/bt file 
are in sync. If I enable BT in the BIOS, the control file returns 1. If I 
disable BT in the BIOS, the control file exists and I can turn it on. If I 
toggle BT on or off, the next time I enter in the BIOS I'll see the right 

Maybe you're using another BIOS firmware?
