I have an Acer notebook computer, and they only have a on/off button for the wireless, not an actual switch. Even if I turn it off, it will turn itself back on again on the next reboot.
If you like, you can do what I have done - and uninstalled pretty much all of the Acer "empowering technology" programs... From the Programs and Features control panel applet in Vista. On looking under your name, it says you're using Windows 2000 Professional, so you'll find it under the Add/Remove Programs control panel applet. In specific, I'm pretty sure the one you want to get rid of is eNet Management, or similar. (It was a while ago, so I don't remember the exact name).
Uninstalling the programs was the only way to get rid of all those rotten programs, they never worked properly anyway. From day one when I bought it, I could not get it to burn me a backup set of system restore discs - and Acer support decided there might be something wrong with the DVD Burner itself, even after repeatedly telling them I can burn other discs no problems... I couldn't be stuffed pushing it any further, if it blows up, I'll just format the lot with my other computer's Vista disc, and be rid of Acer's preinstalled rubbish forever.
Sorry for the rant!
