    I've selected "always active when on battery" but if I shut it down or go into sleep mode and then turn it back on it will do the whole "It's been turned off to conserve battery" BS.

    Can anyone help?
    Not a huge problem but it's rather annoying to keep selecting "always keep it on" (which doesn't quite do what it says) when it gets deactivated.

    control panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Network Adapters

    Find your wifi adapter, right click > properties > power management > uncheck the box that says allow the computer to shut off this device to conserve batt.
