At what looks like 11.30 am local time my wifi network turned itself back on (based on traffic on my router). How can I see what process turned it on? Usually I turn it off and on with fn+f2 which turns it off and on also in system status in Fedora 28. Obviously, when I turn it off I want it off.

Anything in sudo journalctl around that time?

@ozeszty Only literally thousands of entries I credit to APOD extension. Nothing else I could find in that mass of data. I like it but.. Also noted I seem to have a double up of most of the entries under gdm-session, two branches. gdm-gdm-session and another branch under gdm with mostly the same branches and leaf nodes.

@ozeszty I presume that one gdm-session is the logon screen, the other is my active session?

I can't help you with gdm, I'm not using Gnome.

There has to be something in the logs, search for KILL and see what happened just before RF_KILL

@ozeszty At least you explained what is wrong, I should be using XFCE. Nothing in there for KILL at that time so I conclude that I left it on. I cannot explain the absence of traffic earlier in the router logs.
