Title says it all. No matter what I settings I try, I can't prevent my wireless usb dongle from being disabled when I leave the computer for an hour or two, even if the network is transferring information
So far I've tried changing my power setting to high performance, disabling sleep mode and turn off monitor.
In Advanced power settings I've also disabled usb selective suspend and under wireless adapter settings power saving mode is set to maximum performance.
Additionally under network adapter in device managers I unticked the 'allow this computer to turn off this device to save power'
I searched and found that External USB drive unmounts when system idle
Had the same problem as me, but it hasn't been solved yet to my knowledge.
