Windows 7: HP Mini 5103 Ethernet is automatically disabling on battery power mode

HP Mini 5103 Ethernet is automatically disabling on battery power mode

Hello guys. I have a little issue here. I've got a HP Mini 5103 netbook and I am using Ethernet connection for internet.
The problem is that every time when I am unplugging the the charger from the laptop (meaning: laptop is working on battery power).
I suppose it is some kind of power saving option, but the fact remains that it's totally sucks, cuz then I have to keep the charger plunged all the time.
I tried to check the Advanced power settings, but there is no option to change Ethernet power settings, also I checked in the Devise Manager in Advanced menu of the Ethernet,, but again no luck to find a setting that would disable that function.
Pleas if you know anything about this problem,, help me out here
Thanks

Hikeman, have you tried the power settings in control panel?
Also, you are checking the power settings while running as administrator?

device manager. for the ethernet card should have a power settings tab if your in admin mode.
Also, you might check the bios settings for power.
