Is there a GPO policy or someting easily deployable that would diable the wireless adapter when a user connects to a physical LAN?

in the days of XP and hardware profiles, you could diable the wifi when a user was connected to a docking station.  With Windows 7 I no longer have that option, so users are connected to both wifi and the lan when docked, although traffic flows correcltly through the LAN i this scenario vs the wifi, id like to find a GPO that would allow me to to disconnect the wifi or even any other wireless network, when the user is physically connected to a network.  Does this exist?  I am in a Windows 2008R2 domain.....
