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.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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
