Windows 7: Airplane mode not working

Q: Windows 7: Airplane mode not working

Hi everyone. I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit on a new V310-15ISK which came with FreeDOS. I got all the drivers installed ok, everything seems to be working fine, except for a couple of quirks: 1. Airplane mode hotkey (F7) is not turning the wireless adapter on/off as it should. Instead I get a blank wireless status window which tells me to turn my wireless adapter on first (which it already is).2. Somewhere in Lenovo Energy Management it says it can't give further info about the battery because it's not an original Lenovo battery (which is a lie). I had to try a few ACPI drivers for the hotkeys to work as there was none on the product support page. I settled on 4eem02ww.exe which is the most recent functional version I found on the web. Can anyone point me to a proper ACPI driver that lets Airplane mode enable/disable the wireless adapter (and displays all battery info)? Cheers.

1. I own a U430 Touch now since a few days. I swapped the HDD out for a SSD and did a clean install of Win10 and installed all drivers offered on the support page. It seems that Im missing the energy management driver (which is required for using the dedicated airplane mode key) with the utility.exe or something but I cant find that energy management driver anywhere. Can somebody point me to a fix for that issue? Or if there is none is there a work around?
 
2. I noticed that the notebook makes strange static noises which originate from the speakers. No matter if the volume is turned up or down or mute is engaged, the static noise persists. Is this a defect or a software issue? The driver offered on the lenovo support page for speakers is from RealTek.

With the new airplane tray icon, I find that after I resume from a hibernate the icon is not working all the time.

With some testing, I found that if I resumed from hibernate right away then the problem didn't always appear. But after being hibernated a few minutes or more, the problem has appeared every time.

If I turn off airplane mode using the notifications tray icon, the airplane tray icon remains in the tray. I can go to wifi and connect manually, but the airplane tray icon is still there. Hovering over it with the mouse pointer and it says wifi is not connected, even though it is.

In addition, once the airplane icon stops working so does the speaker icon. I can't get left or right mouse clicks to do anything. This behavior of the speaker icon started after the (November) update, which I just installed last week.

Only a restart or shutdown/start clears both these issues.

Anyone else see this?

Sorry for the question. I removed the USB wireless and the wired connection functions properly now. I had tried warm and cold rebooting to no avail.

I am using an HP laptop with Windows 8.

My problem: I am looking for a way to disable the wifi (airplane mode) button. I am NOT looking for a way to disable wifi or airplane mode, but the actual button that controls airplane mode.

Why?: I never use the airplane mode button (because it is useless), and because Windows thinks its funny to make me go to Charms/Settings/Change PC Settings in order to simply re-enable my wifi after accidentally hitting the airplane mode button (why do they? Who knows.). The reason I keep accidentally hitting the airplane mode button is because I use a mousepad on top of my keyboard while playing games (which frequently hits the airplane mode button). If I cannot find out how to disable the button, then I will simply rip the physical key out of my keyboard (since Windows can't find a better way to solve MINOR issues like these) as a means to stop accidentally hitting the key.

How can I simply disable the button's use?

Thank you,

-Miles
 

A:How to disable airplane mode *button* in Windows 8?

The only Airplane buttons in Windows 8 that I have found are the one in Settings and the one you get to via the Network icon in the Notification Area. Are you talking about the latter one? Theoretically that is a toggle that will then turn Airplane Mode back off (i.e., turn the Wi-Fi back on).

On my Lenovo I can also toggle it via the Fn + F5 key combination, but of course that is not part of Windows.

A lot of people seem to be having trouble with the Wi-Fi button and with the airplane mode icon displaying when it shouldn't in Windows 10. Is there some kind of explanation or fix? I did a clean install of Windows 10, and the HP Wi-Fi button driver was installed automatically by the Windows installer, or at least I'm pretty sure it was. I seem to recall seeing it listed in Device Manager or someplace. Anyway, the button was working fine, but today I tried to switch my Wi-Fi off using the F12 button, and it didn't work. I clicked on the Wi-Fi icon in the task bar and switched to airplane mode that way. That worked, and the light on the Wi-Fi button changed from white to orange. I still couldn't use the F12 button to turn airplane mode off. I turned airplane mode off manually and reconnected to my Wi-Fi, but the airplane mode icon continued to show on the task bar, even though I was connected to the Internet, able to browse web pages, etc. I rebooted, and still the same problem. In network settings I went in and turned airplane mode off there (even though I was already connected), but the Wi-Fi button is still not working. Is this all a Windows 10 bug, or is there a fix? I noticed similar behavior on a friend's newer HP laptop (a Notebook 15 model) that came with Windows 10 installed--i.e., the airplane mode icon displaying despite the system having an active Wi-Fi connection. Thanks in advance for any advice or explanation.

Hello,

I have a newer laptop (HP Pavilion Touchsmart 14) that is running Windows 8.1. I probably should have searched this problem from day one but the issue is so random that I can go 2 months without much of a problem and then I can spend two weeks encountering the problem with every login. When I connect the computer to wifi, whether it be my home wifi, a hotel wifi or an airport wifi, it will sometimes randomly start to cycle in and out of airplane mode for no apparent reason. I can open the settings or wifi icon from the tray (pretty much anywhere I can access the airplane mode toggle) and try to toggle the thing manually but it ignores my mouse clicks and continues to cycle on and off. The same is true if I use the wifi button on the keyboard.

I have tried resetting the wifi card and also disabling firewall but any correlation to the problem seems random. I have also checked that the hardware drivers are up to date. I cannot seem to find any real cause or solution (I have googled the problem extensively and all that comes up are ways to reset the card or different methods for turning airplane mode on and off, none of which helps).

For me the ideal solution is a way to permanently disable airplane mode on my computer. I don't need it and don't want it anyway and would LOVE to rip that mode out of this computer completely.

Has anyone encountered this issue and is there a fix or a way to delete airplane mode from my system?

Thank you,

Brian

How to Turn on/off Airplane mode in Windows 10
Review this document.
Use hardware switchMany devices have a hardware switch to turn on or off the Airplane mode. You can use that button or switch to turn off all the wireless signals from your device. However, Microsoft says that using a hardware switch may not necessarily disable all the wireless communications. Some Windows Store apps have the ability to bypass the hardware switch to connect to GPS or cellular data. The best method, according to Microsoft, is to use the Airplane mode button available via Notifications in System Tray.Use Notifications shortcutTo toggle the state of Airplane mode in Windows 10, click on Notifications icon. Scroll down to see the options. Click on the button saying Airplane mode to turn it on or off.

Most Dell laptops have a physical switch which turns the WiFi adapter On or Off. When the switch is off and there is no wired connection to the Internet, the laptop shows to be in Airplane mode. If the switch if On and the laptop is still in Airplane mode, the WiFi adapter could be disabled. From Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections look at the status of the WiFi adapter; if it shows as 'Disabled', just right click on it and select 'Enable'.

Since the keyboard is a Bluetooth device, I now can't interact with my laptop (i.e. move the cursor to disable airplane mode). This is the second time that this happen and it's really frustrating since I wish that there's actually an airplane mode button on the sides of the laptop itself for situations like this. I tried downloading ng a hard restart like I did last time, but I still can't get out of airplane mode. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

My Acer ES1-521 has had a problem for the past week.  Wifi does not work because airplane mode is turned on and it can't turn off.  It is running Windows 10.  I've tried:1. turning it off using control panel / network & internet / airplane mode / switch off.  (The switch keeps moving back to the 'on' position)2. Pressing "Fn" and "F3" (which has the antenna wifi symbol) simultaneously.3. Looking for a manual wifi switch which is sometimes on laptops - but this laptop does not have one. I'm out of ideas!  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello
Here's my problem. My desktop computer was working fine. I used it in the morning than shut it down. A couple of hours later, it was impossible to connect to the internet. My router is working because all my Ipad and other devices can connect to the Wi-Fi network. The computer seems to be stuck in "Airplane mode" because i see the "Airplane mode" icon next to my internet acces icon. I can't find any way to shut off this airplane mode!

Is there a way to keep Bluetooth on in the airplane mode? My application is on a cruise ship where I would like to easily turn WiFi off using the convenient airplane mode selection and leave Bluetooth on for my mouse on my Venue 10 tablet.

A:Airplane mode with Bluetooth ON?

Hello Calbear,

Yes. When airplane mode is turned on, you'll still be able to turn on or off your individual Bluetooth and wireless devices.
