I have a Medion laptop running XP and a built-in wireless card.  To start the wireless device, I need to press a hotkey.  This is similar to Acer laptops.  There's a couple of files that run at startup (they're under HKLM\software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run) like hotkeyapp.exe, launchap.exe and wbutton.exe.  Wbutton.exe is used to start the wireless device.  
Problem is that I have a roaming profile and I can only press the button once I'm logged on.  Since I have no network connection, my profile won't load, so I have to log on with local profile, press wireless button, log off (wireless stays activated when logging off) and log back on.  
Is there any way to activate that button *before* logging on?
Any help *greatly* appreciated!
