In Os2008 I find no such option.  In fact I find no "advanced" option 
anywhere.  Be more specific?

However, with bluetooth and wifi turned off and nothing but one xterm 
(running "top") open, I see a load average of 4.4 consistently, with 
ke-recv, dbus-daemon, and hald being among the processes most often 
receiving processor time.  Something's wrong here, right?
