Since Recent Windows 10 Update(Not Upgrade), Wifi adapter loses wifi Access Points after PC goes to sleep.

As the Title states, after a recent  Win 10 Update, not upgrade, when my Pc goes into sleep, or just stand-by mode, the wifi stays ON but the WiFi list is empty.( Wifi Adapter shows its enabled but does not show a list of available wifi in range)

I have to disable the wifi Card via Change adapter settings page and right click on the WIFI adapter and click disable. then re-enable it and it now sees the wifi in range. OR i just right click on the Wifi icon on the bottom right of my screen and click trouble shoot problem and it resets the adapter and it works again.

Again, this issue ONLY arose after a recent windows 10 update and when the PC goes into a stand-by or sleep mode.

Ive tried updating the drivers, deleting all drivers and reinstalling them and its a no go. same issue.

My PC is an Alienware X51-R2 with the I7 CPU.
