Perhaps, and i'm just waiving my fork through the air, but have you
checked if there is a setting in the BIOS setting... something about the
power state of the wireless card. I know there there is a setting for it
in my laptop, but i don't have windoze so i can test to see if it does
it to me.

Just ignore me if this suggestion was so blatantly obvious!!!
