    The Power Saving Mode setting under Wireless Adapter Settings in Power Options allows you to control the power saving mode of wireless adapters.

    The strength and performance of your wireless network will decrease as you increase power savings, but your battery life will increase.

    There are four power saving modes available to select from:

    Windows Wireless Display Adapter-not connecting anymore

    Hello Phillip,

    Did you notice any changes on your PC prior to the issue? I suggest that you follow the steps outlined in this support article:
    Troubleshooting Wireless Display Adapters.

    Since updating drivers did not work, in addition, you can try to reset the Wireless Adapter.

    1. On the adapter, press and hold the reset button for 10 seconds.
    2. When the message " Ready to connect "shows, open the
      Action Center.
    3. Select Connect, and in the list of displays, select
      Microsoft
      Wireless Display Adapter.

    Please respond to this thread to let me know how the issue progresses. Similarly, if you have more questions, please inform me by replying to this post.

  6. My dell laptop is stuck in flight mode

    Hi David,

    Airplane mode is a setting that gives you a quick way to turn off all wireless communication on your laptop. To turn it off, we suggest that you change the Network Adapter Properties of your laptop. You may follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on the Start button, and select Device Manager from the list of options.
    • Double-click the Network Adapters section to expand it.
    • Choose your wireless modem from the available list, and right-click on it to navigate to its
      Properties.
    • This launches the Properties dialog box of your adapter. Hit on the
      Power Management tab.
    • Clear off the option that says Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
    • To apply the changes, press OK.
    • This will resolve the Airplane Mode issues in Windows 10, and resume its slider to be turned off.

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.
