Well, if it's a software annoyance and not that it seated poorly, then you
should be able to use 'cardctl eject' and 'cardctl insert'  (I do this all
the time, my stuff can't tell whether I felt like having the card on, and
I don't feel like bleeding juice for it when I don't need its services.)

If it *is* that it seats improperly, then get it seated properly once, and
then prefer to use cardctl to pop and unpop it unless you really need the
slot for something else.
