  since we are talking about laptops: will divine also shutdown my
ethernet PCMCIA card if no network connection is found?  I'm lazy, so
I'd like to keep both, the modem and the ethernet card in their
resp. slots.  But it would be nice it they were suspended while not in
use to conserve battery power a bit.
