Bonjour Prior, to Yosemite this could be done via launchctl, so using: sudo launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist would turn Bonjour off, and to turn it back on: sudo launchctl load -w /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder.plist Unfortunately /usr/sbin/mDNSResponder is not found on Yosemite. A ...

My mid-2011 mb air supports Bluetooth LE and Bluetooth 4, yet apple has prescribed that it shall not support handoff. The LMP Version required for handoff, 0x6, is also supported. Why apple decided to not include support for handoff/continuity our mb air models when we have the hardware in place to run it needs further explanation from apple.

I was able to overcome the problem with this quick fix. So whenever you loose bluetooth connectivity just run the following commands in the terminal $ sudo kextunload -b com.apple.iokit.BroadcomBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport $ sudo kextload -b com.apple.iokit.BroadcomBluetoothHostControllerUSBTransport You will regain connectivity.

From ArsTechnica: Unlike Handoff, the feature [phone calls] doesn’t appear to use Bluetooth at all, and unlike AirDrop, it doesn’t require your device to support peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connections. Unlike so many of the other Continuity features, this one looks like it should work fine even if you’re using an iPhone 4S with an iMac or MacBook Pro from 2007. ...

I've had this same exact issue with a Bluetooth apple magic mouse. The culprit for me was the rechargeable batteries that I was using. Before I changed the batteries it would constantly lose connectivity and then connect again a few seconds later. It was very frustrating. Did your keyboard and touchpad come with any drivers? If so are the up to date?

Updated/Better Answer: 1) This new script doesn't flash. 2) For reasons unbeknownst to man and logic (or just me), applescript sometimes/almost-always fails to Turn Bluetooth Off, if the System Preference window is in the background. Instead of turning off, what actually occurs is that Bluetooth immediately re-enable itself, so the pane is in a fresh ...

These troubleshooting steps helped me resolve this on one account: delete all pairing records in BlueTooth (Or at least all iOS pairing records) and then power down the Mac. disable the setting to disable "iPhone Cellular Calls" in the FaceTime part of the settings app. power down the iPhone 5 and start it back up. Don't launch any apps on the phone ...
