What is the output of:

dmesg | tail; lsb_release -a

After the power off?

mobiz@Mobiz:~$ dmesg | tail; lsb_release -a

This question was expired because it remained in the 'Open' state without activity for the last 15 days.

i need the answer desperately. I just wanted to add that if in a state when there is no power the connection is there but no data transfer takes place but if I switch on the wifi radar application I can access internet.

All I can suggest is log a bug. Your ACPI is being weird.

Can you help with this problem?
