That's not really the same thing. s-c-n is for controlling the old way
of doing network configuration, its settings wouldn't kick in unless you
set the connection to be not controlled by NetworkManager. Even then,
what that checkbox would really do is just not bring the interface up by
default at boot time; the *hardware* itself would still be activated.

I don't think NM is written to assume that the settings you choose for
'Enable Networking' and 'Enable Wireless' should be preserved across
boots. Dan, what's the status of this? Is it expected behaviour for
those statuses to be preserved? If not, do you think it should be?
