WiFi keeps shutting off

Link to this post 24 Jun 11

On startup, or after waking up from hibernating, my wifi card is always off. I have a script running at startup now to turn on the card, but is there a way to run the script on wakeup from hibernation s i dont have to open a term to turn on the card? The button on the laptop only works to turn the card on or off 1 out of 20 tries, so its not as simple as just pushing a button.

Ubuntu 10.9

Quote of first hit on Google, worth testing:

... go to /etc/pm/sleep.d/ and add a script that will be executed before and after suspending or hibernating. The script receives a single command-line parameter "suspend", "resume", "hibernate" or "thaw", it should inspect this argument and take the appropriate action. There should be at least one other script in that directory (99laptop-mode) that you can use as a reference.

Besides the link Aron gave you, you can also check NetworkManager and see if the box next to "Start Automatically at boot" is checked. It's sometimes as simple as that. I don't use hibernate or suspend, but, I know it solved my problems at start.
