Turn ON/OFF Bluetooth, WiFi and other devices (what I've discovered so far)

I'll let you know what the dealer and the manufacturer will answer me as
soon as possible.
As far as now I've been capable or turning ON/OFF:

- the RFID reader using dealer supplied
executables (PowerAPIon/off.exe)
- CF WiFi and any other expansion card
using "Psion Mobile Devices SDK"
Regarding Bluetooth I've tried using unsuccessfully:

- SetPowerRequirement (coredll.dll)
- Psion Mobile Devices SDK
- BluetoothRadio.BluetoothRadioMode (32feet)
- BthSetMode (Bthutil.dll)

Googling I've found that 32feet and Microsoft methods are based on
Bthutil.dll library.
MSDN it's wrong when it says it's supported from Windows CE 4.2: it's
I think it's only supported on Pocket PC 2003 and later (Windows Mobile).

Windows can disable Bluetooth so it's possible to do it; moreover Pocket PC
2003 is based on CE 4.2 so I think that copying Bthutil.dll on my device it
will work!
Does anybody have a Pocket PC 2003 and could supply me that DLL?

My dream was making a DLL to power on/off devices calling Windows CE APIs,
but if it is impossible I'm happy to use dealer supplied EXEs and Psion
DLLs, but as for Bluetooth if I don't have Bthutil.dll, it cannot be done.
Thnak you everybody,
