That bug is already confirmed and being looked into. It will need
fixing in the wifi driver for you hardware, but in the meantime there
is a workaround:

Edit /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/wireless ; add "exit 0" at the very
beginning; right after the first "#!/bin/sh" line.

Alternatively, you could remove that file
(/usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/wireless) completely.

What most likely happens is that while your system allows telling the
driver to go in powersave mode; but this has the driver react badly
and lose the connection (and I guess it can't establish one afterwards

I'll update the bug accordingly.
