If you use Wi-Fi in your Laptop, you may have faced the problem of your Wi-Fi getting switched off when your Laptop is kept idle for few hours. This is a default procedure in Windows which is done to optimize the power management. It results in an increase of your battery life.
For some users who use their Wi-Fi for longer periods of time, it is somewhat annoying as they have to re-establish the Wireless Network Connection.
