Every time this laptop goes to sleep or hibernates and comes back on the wireless connection doesn't connect. I have adjusted the power options for maximum performance and also double checked the advanced settings to make sure it wont go off.
I am going to make sure the wireless drivers are all up to date. It is a windows 7 and has all the recommended updates and looked at the optional and no network driver.

Step 1: Click on Start and go to Control Panel. In the Control Panel, Click on Small Icons to VIEW.

Step 2: Find Network and Sharing Center and open it.

Step 3: On the left side, you will see an option that says "Change adapter settings". Open it

Step 4: You will two connections there, local and wireless. Right Click on WIRELESS one and select properties.

Step 5: Now Click on CONFIGURE.

Step 6: You will see 5 tabs, click on the last one that says "power management"

Step 7: Now simply UNCHECK the first box that says "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"

Thats it, you are done. NOW you can do whatever you want, put it to sleep, stand by, hibernate ... and yea you wont have a problem anymore :)

Perfect! I haven't tested yet but that looks like that is the key.
