    Can not turn power management off

    Hi, I am using 12.04
    Code:
    sudo iwconfig wlan0 power off
    works but not when I try to make it permanent, I googled and other people have had the same issue in 12.04.

    My wireless uses ath9k and it works better with it off.

    Should I write a scrpit and what should be included?
    Thanks

    Does it work in /etc/rc.local? As you know, it doesn't require sudo.

    I added the option here:
    Code:
    /etc/pm/power.d/wireless
    but it did not stick.
    Thanks

    I do not know why it did not stick the first time but I am glad it is working now.
    Thanks for your help.
