The same happed on a HP laptop I used for a while.

I think the reason is that bluetooth and wifi uses the same antenna, and 
off-line mode probably just powers down the low level transmitter, so 
both signals are turned off together.

I too ran into the problem with enabling off-line mode for power savings 
and then not being able to use the bluetooth keyboard.
