Make sure your WiFi card is ACPI compliant.  ACPI power features may have to be enabled for the card in Device Manager.

Update WiFi drivers too.  There may have been a windows patch that broke the drivers.

Will it reconnect after waking up from sleep if you disable and re-enable the card?

Most laptops have a hotkey sequence (usually Function (Fn) + one of the F keys.) to disable/enable the radio
