Hi guys,

My new MBP running Mavericks has this problem where whenever I leave it for more than 30mins-1hr unattended the wifi just switches off.

This makes it very inconvenient for things like downloading and uploading where the internet connection needs to be left on when I leave the computer.

I've already tried turning on the "Prevent computer from sleeping when display is turned off" in energy saver as well as the caffeinate -s command in terminal.

Help would be much appreciated.

If all else fails, download InsomniaX. It'll keep your machine on for eternity if need be.
