Wifi Stops Working Everyother Time I turn on my Computer

This is a strange problem. About every other time I turn on my computer it cannot connect to the internet. It goes like this:

 

1. Turn on computer

2. Unlock Bitlocker

3. Windows 10 Loads up

4. Computer does not automaticlly connect to internet

5. I click on the lower right hand wifi icon

6. All wireless connections in the area show up but if I click connect nothing happens.

7. If I click out of the wifi list and click back into it (by clicking again on the wifi icon) all the wifi signals are gone.

8. If I reset the computer everything works and the internet connects

 

I'm on a T450s, Windows 10. This problem happens whether or not I am at home, at work, or at Starbucks. It is a very annoying problem becuase I have to reset my computer every other time I want to use the internet. Any thoughts? Thanks!

I would look at the device manager (under administrative tools)  and find the wifi card, unde5r network adapters.  There should be a power tab.  Uncheck the option to allow the machine to tuirn off the adapter to save power.
