Default Disable power management ubuntu - 11-23-2010, 03:32 PM

How can I prevent ubuntu from turning power management back on my wireless card when I go from ac to dc?

Every time I unplug I have to run "sudo iwconfig eth1 power off" and type my password to be able to use my wireless at full speed.

I dunno. I looked around the power scripts and such, but I couldn't find the culprit.
