I know my Thinkpad does. Failing that, my "HW RF Kill switch" on this Inspiron E1505 is Fn+F2; F2 has a blue picture of a tower with "radio waves" coming out of it. I think it is odd that my HW (hardware) switch only works when my computer is on, and probably involves SMM (system management mode) part of my BIOS software. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. firstname.lastname@example.org ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
