the light that is for the wireless does go out, but it also goes out if im
not connected to a network cause its also an activity light. i know some
laptops are just on or off depending on the status of the card. the switch
itself for controling the wireless is still on and turning it off then on
again does nothing. i do also have an Fn+F2 way of turning on and off the
card but the software for doign that doesnt see the wireless card.
