Wireless network is deactivated by hp connection manager after hibernating, sleep and sometimes when I use the computer. I can't see any preferences in HP Connection Manager to correct this, or in Windows power management.
What is the solution to keep the wireless network activated ALL THE TIME??
Uinstall of the HP Connection Manager doesn't work, then I can't activate the wireless network again!
HP ProBook 4530s (brand new)
Windows 7 Pro (included with the computer)
No other power or wireless utilities installed, just HP utilities as installed from the factory.
Hoping for a quick solution.
Thanks in advance.

There is a setting in Connection Manager > Preferences > Device Power that COULD be set to turn off the wireless / Bluetooth when the Connection Manager has exited. You have to select / SET the setting. You might check, just in case... I have never heard of the Connection Manager turning off Wireless unless it has been instructed to do so upon exit.
You can do the following in the Device Manager to leave power to the Wireless and Bluetooth device(s):
Control Panel > icon view > Device Manager > Network adapters >
Right-Click on (Intel) WiFi Link (wording will vary) >
in Properties > Power Management >
UNCHECK "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
Do the same for Bluetooth...
Hope this helps...

Excellent. I am glad it helped.
That Device Manager setting does seem to help a lot of people; one would think it would be set the other way as a default since it is not intuitive that the system might turn off your device(s) when you want them left on. Smiling. You might check your Bluetooth....

Check out the Connection Manager doc below:
Excerpted from the Section entitled "Setting Preferences":
- If you CHECK "Launch HP Connection Manager when Windows starts (Figure 2 in the doc)
- CHECK "Wi-Fi (Wireless LAN)"
- CHECK "Bluetooth"
- the Connection Manager will start when Windows starts
- WiFi will fire up and become available for service right after the Connection Manager starts
- Bluetooth start up will be available for service soon after the Connection Manager starts
Take a look at the settings and then select
- When you want the Connection Manager to start
- What the Connection Manager displays when it does start
- Which services start with the Connection Manager
