=== Wireless Kill Switch ===
+
[[Category:Hardware]]
The bios will allow you to configure the kill switch for killing any combo of wifi, cellular, and bluetooth.  However killing the wifi seems to make the iwl4965 kernel module unhappy and require reloading.  Therefor I have it configured to just kill bluetooth (I have no cellular), and that works fine.
