The output doesn't change. By the way, the led colour never changes, it
always shows white. An extract from the hp manual

After unblocking the response to "rfkill list" is

Code:
--------------------

0: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes
1: hp-bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes
2: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
3: hci0: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no

--------------------


Right-clicking on the NetworkManager icon shows that wireless still is
unavailable and may not be activated.


Hi
So did the system originally come with SLED, or was it running windows?

HP have some special drivers for both wireless and bluetooth, not sure
if available for that model and SLE 12, you would need to contact HP
Support.

If you reboot and press F10 to go to the BIOS and disable both the
bluetooth and wireless save/exit and restart the system and let it boot
to SLED, is the light now amber, and what is the output from rfkill?

Then restart the computer, press F10 again and re-enable the wireless
and bluetooth and save/exit and let the computer start up, does it all
change?
