If there is a hotkey, or something of like that will disable the wireless, the best thing to do would be to remove support for the hotkey (remove the drivers and/or support software)
Then;
a) If you are operating in an Active Directory Domain setting - change the privilege levels of the users/groups in Active Directory, so that they are unable to make hardware changes (remove all administrative privilege), thereby eliminating their ability to activate/deactivate the wireless via the device manager when logged in to the Active Directory Domain.
Be sure to also restrict local machine access in order to prevent them from accessing the device manager without logging in to the Active Directory network (Windows Professional Series operating systems), or demote the user's accounts to the USER level (as opposed to Administrator) (all other versions of windows operating systems)

or

b) If you are operating in a peer-to-peer/homegroup network setup - Change the local machine privilege levels for the users/groups so that they are unable to make hardware changes (remove all administrative privilege), thereby eliminating their ability to activate/deactivate the wireless via the device manager (Windows Professional Series Operating systems), or demote the user's accounts to the USER level (as opposed to Administrator) (all other versions of windows operating systems)

unsure about disabling the on/off for the wireless

but you could setup a script that will run once there is a network connection that will run:
gpupdate
or
gpupdate /force

should at least load the gp

We are using Active Directory & have Students in a Group Policy, could you guide me as to create a Policy for disabling them to make Hardware changes. Thanks

"Active Directory Domain setting - change the privilege levels of the users/groups in Active Directory, so that they are unable to make hardware changes " where would you find this? I'm unable to find similar setting in Group Policy or Active Directory. Please Advise. Thanks
