Are you certain that "NetworkManager" itself stops? Or, could it simply be
Wifi device is being powered off?
I don't use xfce. But KDE has a section in its "Power Management" setup
where it shows
Energy Saving - And a checkbox for Wireless with choices for "Leave
"Turn On", "Turn Off".
Also, what do you have in /etc/systemd/logind.conf for entries containing
FORGET, everything I wrote above.
I miss-remembered the Energy Savings settings. It only had to do with how to deal
with A/C and Battery options.
And the logind.conf setting is only valid for when no user is logged in.
I've not found a setting in KDE that affects the Wifi of my wife's laptop when
lid is closed. With KDE it just stays available even with the lid closed. (She
wouldn't let me touch her system until now.)
I believe all research assistants should be paid for their time.
