"New access point" notifications..

I have been using 4mlinux for some (3/4 year) time now, and I am very happy with it!
Printer set up was easypeasy, internet is speedy, what more do I need?
No unnecessary flashy inlog screen, thank goodness for that!
4mlinux is breath of fresh air in Linux-land!
I use a wired internet connection at home, due to wifi radiation "sickness".. It makes my stomach turn around.
Never the less, I tried to connect the wifi this morning using the icon on the menu bar, but did not succeed.
So I went to menu-internet-settings-wpa_gui. Filled in the details and Bob's your uncle. And it kept working!
But there is one thing that is rather annoying..It's those "new access point" notifications that keeps popping up in the top right corner.
When wired, I just turn it off by disabling Manage Networks in the wpa_gui.
No problem.
So, is there a way to turn those notifications off? (without losing the wifi connection, off course..:-) )

Thanks for reading!

Greetings, Edward

You can safely close the Network Configurator applet when your connection is established.

Thanks for your nice words about 4MLinux!

An option to turn those notifications off will be added in 4MLinux 17.O STABLE.

Aha! Now why didn't I think of that!
I didn't have this 'problem' in stable 15, though.
Anyway, many thanks!
