Vista keeps turning off my wireless!
When I leave my notebook open, or shut it to go in hibernation, then wake it up, it frequently has lost the wireless connection (10 feet away). I click and it says it can't find any wifi sites; I click on diagnose the problem, and it says wireless capability was turned off and offers to turn it on, duh.

Why would it turn it off? What can I do to prevent it from happening?

I have an Asus W7S-A1W 2GHZ duo processor, 1.5 GB RAM, Vista Business.

Many thanks!

Power settings
In the deice manager check that the wireless adaptor is not set to turn off to save power.

I checked and it's already set to NOT turn off. Now what?

Re: Power settings
In the deice administrator examine that the wi-fi adaptor is not set to convert off to be preserving energy.
