Wi-Fi Completely Disabled after Lid Shut Suspend on Dell Latitude 3340

Bug Description

Wi-fi becomes disabled sometimes after the lid on the laptop is shut and the OS is suspended for a time. Bluetooth is turned off when this occurs.

The network settings first reports "Wi-Fi is disabled" when the OS is resumed. If the user then disables and re-enables Networking or Wi-Fi via the menu option , the status of the Wi-Fi changes to say "Wi-Fi is disabled by hardware switch".
Toggling the Fn-PrtScr keyboard hardware networking switch has no effect and does not actually re-enable the Wi-Fi. Running "sudo rfkill unblock wifi" also has no effect.

The only known workaround is to restart the machine.

Moving this to NetworkManager so it gets triaged. I think this may be a duplicate of an existing bug there.
