    Network adapter items missing after resume from sleep

    those two items are missing when resuming from sleep. with those two missing, wifi is being shown that it is off also. a quick fix for this is to "scan for hardware changes" and those two bluetooth adapters pop right back up and wifi is working again. those items are not set for windows to be able to shut them off to save power.

    what is making those disappear when putting the laptop to sleep and how do i fix it? thanks for reading.

    Bluetooth will always go into a sleep/suspend state if no device is connected with that feature.
