Unchecking Airport under Network Preferences / Network Port Configurations doesn't turn off power to the Airport card. This is very important to understand. Even though the menu icon appears as if the Airport power is off, it's still running. I wish that unchecking a port (Airport / Bluetooth) would actually turn off the power to these interfaces.

Aw geez, you're right. Well, that pretty much defeats the whole purpose of this hint.
