Package: acpi
Version: 1.1-2
Severity: important

After power-on my laptop, if I change wireless switch to ON, only bluetooth power-on after I press Fn+F5.

/var/log/messages show me this:
usb 1-1: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 5
usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=0a5c, idProduct=2110
usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
usb 1-1: Product: BCM2045B
usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Broadcom Corp

I found a script in /etc/acpi/events, but:
# /etc/acpi/events/ibm-wireless
bash: /etc/acpi/events/ibm-wireless: Permission denied

# ls -la /etc/acpi/events/ibm-wireless

# chmod +x /etc/acpi/events/ibm-wireless

# /etc/acpi/events/ibm-wireless
/etc/acpi/events/ibm-wireless: line 5: HKEY: command not found

# /etc/acpi/wireless.sh
Ignoring unknown interface wlan0=wlan0.
Failed to connect to wpa_supplicant - wpa_ctrl_open: No such file or directory

So... I really don't know how can I turn-on my wireless card after my laptop is turned-on (Fn+F5 change bluetooth only).
If I do a right click over knetworkmanager and choose "Options --> Active wireless", nothing is changed.

$ lspci | grep -i wireless
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan] Network Connection (rev 02)

# dpkg -l | grep supplicant

I'm using Debian Lenny with KDE.
