Disabling hardware or services using WMI

Im having some trouble disabling hardware using WMI. I got a handle on
the device, but when I call SetPowerState I get a type mismatch. The
definition of the method says it takes an int (power level), datetime
(when to do it)
objNetCard.SetPowerState(6, Convert.ToDateTime(Now()))
Seeing as that wasnt going anywhere I tried stopping the service for
the driver using StopService - but this returns 4, which apparently
means Invalid service control.... but ive got no idea what that really
means or how to fix it.
