    Default Grrrrr what genius came up with the idea for the touch wifi button?

    The touch buttons above the keyboard on my HP pavilion are good. I like the volume buttons etc BUT NOT THE BLOODY WIFI BUTTON.

    One accidental brush and BAM wireless disabled. VERY annoying if I am downloading something.

    OK, rant over...

    I knew HP were stupid, but not that stupid. At least ASUS have the sense to make it a keyboard combo (on my Eee, it's Fn+F2).

    Would it be possible to come up with a key combination similar to what pcuserwinvista has said?

    i got an HP with those touch buttons, the click noise doesnt work when you use the volume but i can live with that.

    ive never accidentally switched off the wireless though..
