I'm new to Linux and I installed eOS on my HP Spectre x360 yesterday.

Everytime I log-in to my account, the Wi-Fi is turned off and I have to toggle the switch. It's on after start-up BEFORE I log in, but after logging in, the airplane mode symbol pops up for a second and Wi-Fi is disabled.

But the airplane mode is never on when I check.

It's a minor problem, but if someone knows how I could fix this, I'd be glad. Thank you.

Which has wifi in it by default... that may be causing the problem.
