I have a brand new HP Laptop Model 15t-dy100 with Intel WiFi 6 AX201NGW. I installed Fedora 32 (KDE spin) on it as the sole operating system (not dual-boot), and now whenever the computer wakes from sleep (either from inactivity, using the sleep command, or from closing/opening the lid), the WiFi device cannot be found. I have to restart the computer in order to be able to use WiFi again.
Running `rfkill list` before sleeping returns:
1: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no
while running `rfkill list after waking from sleep returns:
1: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: yes
I understand that this is usually a hardware switch issue, but there is no hardware switch for WiFi on the body of the laptop. There is an "Airplane Mode" function key, but pressing it does not enable WiFi after waking from sleep.
To try to fix this, I downloaded the "iwlwifi-Qu-48.13675109.0.tgz" driver from https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005511/network-and-i-o/wireless.html, extracted the contents to `/lib/firmware`, and disabled Secure Boot. However even after restarting, WiFi still disables after waking from sleep.
Please advise on how to proceed to allow WiFi to function even after waking from sleep.

I face such kind of issues in hpr007tx. I was struggling with airplane mode always on till yesterday ( almost 5month). So I can't run wireless device. Even external USB wifi will not work. Bcoz of airplane. And my battery become low capacity.not giving backup power supply. I did two thing.but I don't know which one is working.
1.i was repalce the laptop battery. it's give me a(601)notification in boot manu.
2. Replace the bios cell( maybe it will work if u just remove the bios cell and put it again)
Before doing this
restore default settings in bios manu.

Thanks for the info @Sathya4me, but I don't have any warnings and/or problems with the battery, airplane mode is not on, and this machine uses UEFI to boot and not BIOS. Therefore, I don't think the issue you described and my issue are actually the same, and your solutions don't work for me.

@sathya4me Welcome to HP Community!
I understand your concerns.
What is the product number of your computer? (Ensure you don't share any personal information such as serial, phone number, email ID, etc..).
Also, let us know the operating system you are using.
Have a nice day!!
