I can't enable my wireless network to get on the internet on win 8 pro.
I went into device manager and notice when I right click hit properties- power management and a box was check. "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". ... underneath... warnning: If this is a laptop computer and you run it using battery power, allowing the network adapter to wake the computer could drain the battery.

now I did charge my battery... not knowing if this connected with my problem or not but when fully charge... it will end up being 75% left with 45min on battery remaining time which is strange. "Maybe the battery is going to die or not. could this be the reason why my wireless won't let me enable.

I have a fresh installed win 8 pro and I did see airplane mode is off and on the right side where you hit pc setting wireless won't enable there either.

Please help and thanks and I hope I made myself clear
