Wifi adapter turned off?

Post by hagemouse » 2019/02/26 17:40:51

Today my centos 7 just updated two software, mokutil and shim-X64. After that, when I close my desktop , the wifi adapter will be closed, and the desktop loses internet connection. I don't know why

But I don't want that. I always download something with the desktop closed.

So is there anyone could tell me why and how to avoid it?

thanks a lot.

I really doubt if those 2 package updates have anything to do with the problem since they're completely unrelated to it.

Can you clarify: what does "when I close my desktop" mean? Desktop as in not a laptop? Desktop as in your GUI windows manager? And what do you mean by closing it?

Sorry, I used wrong word.
It is a laptop. And I changed nothing in bios.

So it's laptop. Are you talking about what happens when you close the lid of the laptop?
