Windows 7: Wireless function disabled after sleep LenovoY530

02 Apr 2013   #1

Windows 7 build 7600 64 bit
Wireless function disabled after sleep LenovoY530

I have a problem with Lenovo Y530. Every time the computer sleeps, wireless function get's disabled and after waking up, computer cannot connect to any network.
Trying to use the combination Fn+F5 which should toggle wireless function does nothing.
The solution to the problem is to run automatic network diagnostics, which fixes the issue (it says "wireless function disabled - fixed"), but I have to run it every time.
Because it's my girlfriends laptop, I am trying to automate the process of running the network diagnostics.

The following command runs network diagnostics from command prompt:
netsh trace diagnose NetConnection
It does find the problem but doesn't fix it. I'm looking for some kind of parameter to this command which will make it run the network diagnostics and fix problem, not only detect it.
Can anyone help??

P.S:I tried changing the drivers for the network card, but that didn't help. The network card is not the original card, because original was fried after computer was flooded. It's Intel Wireless Wifi Link 4965AGN.

P.S2:The computer also has hardware switch for wireless function, but it doesn't switch the card on/off (Guy who replaced the card said it was put in different slot on the mainboard, which doesn't get disabled by hardware switch).

Try going to device manager and going to properties in your wireless card and under power Managment uncheck "allow computer to turn off this device to save power"

If that doesn't work try looking around in the bios

Sleep function disabled.. how do you enable?
Here's the skinny: I downloaded the RC over the summer to try it out, alongside linux mint. I like it so much that I've decided to abandon the linux distro for now and let Windows 7 take over my whole hard drive. The one thing remaining before falling in love is the lack of standby mode. The...
