KDE Daemon nags me for wireless network authentication

I don't know how long it's been since I've logged in yesterday coming back home from my mom's house but KDE daemon seems to be nagging me for wireless network password even though I'm using Ethernet connection. It seems to be nagging me for like maybe 10 minutes to an hour but I'm not sure why it's doing that. I use my laptop for wired and wireless networking.

I'm using Kubuntu 12.04 with a KDE 4.9 from kubuntu-ppa-backports-precise.

I get this in Ubuntu too. I used to just turn off the wireless with the "hard" switch, but the hardware switch isn't hard at all. It's a sensor on the keyboard that is supposed to enable/disable the wireless by touching it. The disabling works well, but the enabling of the wireless is hit or miss, which has bit me in the past at a meeting I was supposed to present at. Now I just let it connect to the wireless. Packets route over Ethernet by default when both are connected anyways.

I've once had a Toshiba laptop way back around 2002 (my mom purchased it for me) with ATI Radeon 7000 with 16MB of VRAM (heh heh, not the new Radeon HD 7000 as of today) and it had a hardware volume and wireless 802.11b switch. It's better to know that the volume is turned all the way down and the hardware wireless switch is off instead of just turning on the computer hoping to see if the volume and wireless is off.

Gosh, did switches and knobs in laptops went the way of dinosaurs?

Update: Ugh! There is goes again (4:17 PM)! Lovely.
