    Aren't the descriptions for Disable and Enable reversed? Enable should keep network connection active while in sleep.

    Were you able to put it back in again or are you saying that, after that update, the tutorial procedure no longer works?

    Sorry, should have been more precise.
    The procedure on this page still works!

    The MS update re-enables "Networking connectivity in Standby".
    And removes the option from the power settings.
