I assume when you remove ethernet cable you have not got any connection with domain controller (wifi). This is caused because you are not caching domain credentials. When you remove network, your computer search valid domain controller, but you have not got connectivity, user can not be validated and you can not do logon.
Try forcing your computer caching domain credentials: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/172931 or by gpo http://windowsitpro.com/windows/domain-credential-caching

If a domain controller is unavailable and a user's logon information is cached, the user will be prompted with a dialog that says:
A domain controller for your domain could not be contacted. You have been logged on using cached account information. Changes to your profile since you last logged on may not be available.
With caching disabled, the user is prompted with this message:
The system cannot log you on now because the domain <DOMAIN_NAME> is not available.



Cached logon information is controlled by the following key:

   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Winlogon\

   ValueName: CachedLogonsCount
   Data Type: REG_SZ
   Values: 0 - 50

check it out what limit is set for cache logon.

also check if GPO is set not cache login policy

By default, all versions of Windows remember 10 cached logons except Windows Server 2008.


so you need to make it 50

So that means only 10 times you can login on from that machine ( when domain is not available)

So login to domain ( with network cable ) and change that value from 10 to 50
