    On laptops with a hard RF kill switch, turning the switch off turns WiFi off. It isn't turned back on until I turn the switch on.

    The P70 doesn't have a hard RF kill switch; it's a function key. Whenever I boot (Linux is what I care about), the WiFi is always set to enabled and I have to turn it off with fn-F8. Since I normally use ethernet, I don't need that WiFi connection. It's easy enough to turn off, but there's no good reason I should have to do this each time. Is there some BIOS setting I've missed here?

    Should be in the configuration page.

    I'd expect that, but I just rechecked and couldn't find one.

    I have the P71, can confirm that sticky wireless doesn't exist in bios options.
