I've installed Qubes-OS 4.0 rc4 on HP 1040 G3 laptop. 
It seems HP has changed the rules of the game and introduced dedicated driver 
for the physical wireless toggle button (located above the keyboard, next to 
the audio on/off button). 
I actually test installed Windows 10 on the laptop to confirm the new feature. 
And indeed, without installing "wireless button driver" pressing the button 
would not cause any effect. 
The same holds true with Qubes-OS installed on the laptop. 

Is there any way of forcing this button to work? It works fine on older HP 
laptop models but they seems to be tightening their hardware architecture even 

My alternative approach for now is to create scrips in sys-net VM to load / 
unload kernel modules (sudo rmmod iwlmvm / sudo rmmod iwlwifi / sudo modprobe 
iwlwifi). This does work fine but is not as elegant as pressing dedicated 

Please share your thoughts and suggestions on forcing HP 1040 G3 to behave. 

Thank you
