You mean you want to get rid of the red slashed circle for the others
as well?  I'm surprised: I thought it was a good idea.  Of course, in
some cases a good alternative is to simply hide the icon of the disabled
hardware components (and provide a "turn on" button somehow somewhere
else for them).

BTW, I also noticed that the USB icon (and corresponding control
panel) disappeared here.  Is that intentional?

I don't know if/how you can do that.  But you can place a window at the
very forefront that hides everything else and grabs all events.
