Fresh LM XFCE 18.3 32bit system. Power management only set to reduce brightness to 90% with power plug connected, yet wireless dies like a dog every time the screen brightness is reduced. Very weird, is this a known issue?

See if disabling wifi power management helps, in terminal

Code: Select all

sudo sed -i 's/wifi.powersave = 3/wifi.powersave = 2/' /etc/NetworkManager/conf.d/default-wifi-powersave-on.conf && systemctl restart network-manager.service
