wifi shuts down after a few hours of no use


I have fedora 21 workstation running on a Dell latitude and after it sets for a while the wifi shuts down. It will come right back up with a reboot.

I tried to go to settings /power/turn of wifi to save power but when I close the window it turns it self right back to the same setting. logged in a root, it did the same thing.

Is there a command line to fix this?

Hi:

There's a command you can use on this page to run in the terminal to restart the Network Mgr.

Fedora 21 reached it's end of life Dec. of 2015.

Running FC 24 should run much more efficiently for you-
