Linux Mint 17 - WIFI disabled upon wakeup

When I put my laptop to sleep and wake it up I find that WIFI is disabled in network manager. Unless I restart the laptop it doesn't get enabled. An issue similar to this has been discussed here http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=53&t=184520. I believe Mint has inherited this issue from Ubuntu since similar issues are discussed in the Ubuntu forum as well.

Based on the discussion on that thread I did the following workaround. Put the following script in /etc/pm/sleep.d and make it executable. I have name the script as "wakeupnet.sh".

#!/bin/bash
case "$1" in
    thaw|resume)
        service network-manager restart
        ;;
    *)
        ;;
esac
exit $?

Its so helpful for all the programmers who want to disable their WiFi by sending just single command to the system via this programming.I like the creative mind behind this program.
