Ok, partially solved this myself.
I tried to boot back into windows, and enabled bluetooth, and then reboot to linux.
It is then enabled.
This seems to be a problem with some history.

Did you try the usual Fn+'some-key'...
Usually Fn+F6... (as in my laptop)
also there maybe another switch to enable Bluetooth/ Wifi in your laptop(i have one). Maybe you haven't toggled that. In my laptop, at its on positon, both Wifi and bluetooth will work, and i can toggle the state of blutooth device by using the Fn key combination now.
Maybe the other guy just switched on the Bluetooth this way in Windows, and then it worked in Linux too.. But the keys work fine in Ubuntu too....
And i'm now using Ubuntu 9.04... Bluetooth support has improved a lot in this version... If still the problem persists. Please try this version. This may fix your problem...
Hope this will help you..

I have the same problem but there is not support for complete idepad acpi in linux (actually, in my gentoo asus-acpi is loaded for acpi ).
I find a very raw option to turn on bluetooth: Restore to default bios config (I know, it is not a good option :/ )
I tried acpi_ibm from freebsd but it is only for thinkpad
I hope Lenovo make a solution!
