Wink One Half of A Bluetooth Toggle

Like most here, I have used a Bluetooth Toggling program (in my case BlueTooth Switch) for years to make connecting painless.
And like most here, I was flummoxed and PO'd to find that it doesn't work on my Tilt 2, and in fact, nothing works, since HTC decided to use a different BT stack.

Why they do these things and don't think one step down the road to the Customer Experience I can't figure, but they screwed the Pooch bigtime on this one!

Well, I've found half of a solution - and a key that I expect will allow an expert here to give us an app to fix it all!

Buried in the WINDOWS folder is a file called "TurnBTOff".

It does Exactly what it says, so if you create shortcut to it in your WINDOWS/STARTMENU/PROGRAMS file you can turn it into a program launchable from the programs TAB.

Of course, you still have to turn BT on manually, but...
surely someone here can take the code apart, see how it's turning BT off and modify it to make it toggle the radio instead of just turning it off.

It would end up on virtually every Raph out there in no time!
Fame and Glory await!

Pretty please with sugar on top!
(or a beer if you prefer)
