After 30 minutes my Windows 7 PC goes to Standby. Problem is, when I get it back to normal, Wi-Fi is disconnected. And it doesn't just reconnect and come back in 10 seconds. For example, when I start it up, I have to click on the Wi-Fi symbol, select the Wi-Fi and connect to it. This takes much longer and made me think about disabling standby altogether - not the best solution.
- The PC is a standard desktop machine, no laptop.
- There is no additional power management software installed.
- The Wireless Network Adapter (Atheros AR5005G) is set to not being able to be
deactivated to save energy in
- The Wireless Network Adapter uses no special software from Atheros, only the driver that was installed by Windows itself

Any idea what could cause this behaviour? How can I stop it from losing Wi-Fi or reconnect normally?
