RE: General Jaws Question

I opened up device manager and found the wireless adapter then turned off
the power.  I heard the vista disconnect sounds but the wireless adapter
stayed.  I even closed the tree view and reopened it to see if it went away
but it didn't.

It sure sounds like you're turning off the power, but who knows.

If you feel like doing this experiment, with the radios on, open up
device manager and find them in the list.

turn the switch  off and see if they stay there or disappear.

thanks.
