I was able to disable/re-enable wifi with
following lines, I did however not have the time to check the impact on
battery life....

# using Atheros wmiconfig command to disable wlan 

./wmiconfig -i eth0 --wlan disable

# To re-enable wlan:

./wmiconfig -i eth0 --wlan enable

# set re-association mode 0 :  do send disassoc when reassociation

./wmiconfig -i eth0 --setreassocmode 0

# now try to reconnect wlan using gui

iwlist eth0 scan 



ill test it
