When I right click on the nm-applet and choose to disable wireless, it turns wireless off. Fair enough, but when I reboot, wireless is magically back on again.
That's just an example, but more generally, in a system with multiple cards, can network manager be made to remember their status? (Like the way Windows will allow you enable/disable a NIC).
I believe that you can disable a NIC permanently by editing files, but I'm hoping for a more ad-hoc situation - if it would just remember my choice, that would be grand.
