Normally i have bluetooth turned off to save battery life on my W520.
When undocked, it's easy to turn on Bluetooth via Fn+F5.
When docked, I tend to use SimpleTap to do Fn + ? things like Suspend, mute, volume control, etc. However, I can find no way to turn on/off Bluetooth via SimpleTap. The "Wireless Radio" SimpleTap icon doesn't let me separately turn on/off Bluetooth. I can't find any additional icon on the Lenovo site to add.
Am I missing something?

As I understand you want to enable or disable Bluetooth in Lenovo SimpleTap
The default tiles comes in Lenovo SimpleTap are
• Display brightness
• Mute sound
• Mute microphone
• Camera preview
• Camera privacy
• Wireless radio
• ThinkLight control
• Screen rotate
• Touch screen lock
• Lenovo Tile
You can enable or disable the Bluetooth in normal mode then come to Leovo SimpleTap as it has one option for Wireless Radio

You didn't answer my question.
I want to turn on/off Bluetooh independently from WiFi via SimpleTap.
So, ideally I would have a separate Bluetooth button on the SimpleTap screen JUST FOR BLUETOOTH.

It has one option as Wireless Radio which control all wireless devices in system.
So separate option for Bluetooth is not available.
So, as I suggested to enable or disable Bluetooth in Windows mode before entering into SimpleTap

SimpleTap doesn't have any built-in tile to turn bluetooth on and off. But you can do this from a command-line as follows:
off: c:\program files\lenovo\hotkeys\tpfnf5.exe /btoff
on: c:\program files\lenovo\hotkeys\tpfnf5.exe /bton
So I created 2 tiles to do this for you. You can copy the files in the attached zip to your "%appdata%\Lenovo\SimpleTap" folder. Then log off and log on to windows (to make SimpleTap find the new tiles) and see if they will work for you.
