When I close the lid on my laptop and open again my wifi will not connect unless I restart. I recently installed windows 8 and that is when the problem ensued. My laptop is a hp envy 15-3247nr with all windows 8 drivers installed and updated including bios. It doesn't matter what I try, my wifi option stays grayed out even with airplane mode off. The f12 key stays orange and will not light up until I restart my laptop once or twice. Please help.
(all drivers are updated and in working order, and yes, the power settings of the network adapter have been changed to not save power)
