[Bug 1506888] Re: wifi status not remembered after reboot


No matter in which way I disable it. Both ways of controlling wireless
work perfectly and consistently (contrary to some previous versions of
ubuntu, e.g. 14.04). The only problem is that the system does not
remember its previous wifi status (On or Off) and always starts with
wireless networks On.

I do not use the automatic login on the machine and always have to log
in manually (should the issue have anything to do with the way of the
log-in procedure).

  wifi status not remembered after reboot

Status in linux-firmware package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I have HP ZBook 15 (1st generation, 2013) with ubuntu-MATE 64-bit;
  latest updates installed. I am presently using an ethernet cable
  network so I turn the wireless network off. After each new start or
  reboot of the machine the wifi radio gets always on and I always have
  to switch it off manually.

  The notebook uses an Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6235 (rev
  24) wireless adapter (I hope this is a hardware version, not a driver

  I think that the On status by default is not good for several reasons:
  - energy consumption is higher
  - security may be affected
  - more electromagnetic radiation in environment
