Solved Laptop disconnects from Wi-Fi when lip is reopened

Toshiba satellite laptop / C55

Specs: Windows 8.1, 4 GB
My wife's laptop, a Lenovo Thinkpad, has developed the following quirk. When she closes the lid and then later opens it, it loses connection with our Wi-Fi network. She then has to reselect our network and reconnect.
Does anyone know why this is happening and what settings to check?

✔ Best Answer
Are you sure it is not disconnecting when the lid is closed.

If that is the case you need to be looking at you power settings as closing the lid usually puts a lap top into sleep or hibernate.

Yep, Stuart, that's exactly what is was. My wife, upon advice from her brother, changed the Closed Cover Sleep Setting, which had mysteriously changed, back to "Do Nothing."
