Note: Restart will not help. Shutdown & start again.
The workaround I'm using that I let that quick launch button "on" all the time. When I have to turn off or turn on anything, I use the HP wireless assistant.
This feature was working absolutely fine before. Only since I installed Vista, I'm seeing this happen.

I've installed a fresh Windows XP SP3 with all the updates. All hardware is found after installing the appropiate drivers.
And when the laptop starts up (at the BIOS) the light for the wireless LAN turns on,, right after that turns off. And it will not turn on again :-(

I have a similar problem where the Intel 802.11abgn Wireless card is not detected in Device Manager. HP sent out a replacement for the wireless card and it worked for about 2 weeks. Now the wireless card has disappeared again... Puzzled???

Besides enable all wireless at BIOS and please download latest "Wireless Assistant" from below web-site that suit the O/S:
and it could resolve that problem.

" infact turning on and off the CAPS LOCK key (which makes all the lights on the touch pad go crazy) "
8710W User here
I have this hardware issue exhibit itself when I lift the laptop up by putting my hands on the sides about in the front 1/3rd of the case (at the palm rest). I assumed there was some case flexture going on which was causing the touch sensitive bar to go wacko.
At first I wasn't too troubled by this since all it did was fire up the calculator window multiple times and the HP Info Center, and the media screen, BUT when it affected the Wireless Button such that it would not "turn back on" THAT'S when I started to get annoyed.
Ok, yeah...all the rest is annoying as well given what I paid for this laptop.
To find that other HP users have EXACTLY the same issue makes me hold my head in disgust that I might YET AGAIN be subject to an HP/CPQ laptop design flaw. I've been through this before. I'm hoping that when I call this in I don't get the run around.
The icing on the cake was hitting the CAPS key as the guy above suggested and it behaved JUST as he described. I hadn't made that correlation until now!

Any clues to why it's doing this.
