Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP 17-by0062st laptop – with Windows 10 on it. When I close the cover, it is set to Sleep. Problem is that when I reopen the cover, it takes 3-5 minutes for the laptop to connect to my wireless network. Why does it take this long and what can I do about it?

 

Windows 10 us the most current version.
