Hi James,
I kind of followed Chris's steps and found it on my Dell laptop. Well, I found my WiFi card as it is the only one that shows up.
Only, I typed the word "connection" singular, not plural.

I arrowed down on my WiFi network so Jaws would see it as selected.
I did the application key, and selected property.
I shift+tabbed once to the configure button and pressed spacebar.
I was on the General tab, as I right arrowed, I went through all the tabs, the last one being Power Management tab, the first item when I tabbed was a checkbox for allowing the computer to turn this device off to save power.

I hope that helps.

Subject: how to change advanced power settings in windows

I know this is a general windows question but I'm getting close to
throwing my laptop through a wall here and I'm wondering if anyone can
My network card in a new pc is afflicted with the popular bug in which
when the computer goes to sleep it turns off the card and it then has
an issue turning back on again. I know that this is a regular issue
and I knew how to fix it, however I've recently found out that windows
appears to have decided to get rid of the power management tab in
device manager.
I've tried creating the CSEnabled key in the registry as the internet
has suggested but still no luck.
Does anyone know of a way of stopping windows from turning off the
network card, or am I going to have to purchase a new network card?
Would appreciate any help people can give me.
