It is unfortunate that your chosen distro does not yet have a tool to control your wifi state, but there may be a way to manipulate the state through the terminal. Generally the wifi button functions are controlled by rfkill.

In my case I have a compaq CQ60 laptop using an atheros 9K wifi card, the wifi button on the case does not trigger the change in state, so I wrote the below script to hand the wifi and wifi led states.

---Start of Script
#!/bin/bash
# Monitor and control the wifi button and led state

STATE=`cat /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state`
if [ "$STATE" = 0 ]; then
echo "255">"/sys/class/leds/ath9k-phy0::radio/brightness"
echo "1"> /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state
else
echo "0">"/sys/class/leds/ath9k-phy0::radio/brightness"
echo "0"> /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state
fi

# This function is complete, but needs to be run as root

--- End if Script

As you can see my wifi button state is handled by /sys/class/rfkill/rfkill0/state, a value of 0 means off and a value of 1 means on.

If you can give us further information then maybe we can guide you to build a script to handle your wifi card.
