The power saving options have been changed to improve battery life and when the unit is restarted after going to sleep or so on it restarts with the WiFi turned off to save power.

The fix here is to enter the Power Saving Options and change this setting.

Might need to go into Control Panel,

then Networking, and check the properties for the wireless connection,
see if there is a check box to keep the connection alive when hibernating.
