when i close my laptop lid my wifi automatically disconnects itself. I am not sure how to fix this. It will reconnect once I open the lid but it takes a few minutes. How do I fix this?

I would go to Control Panel and take a look under Power Options, that usually happens to save power depending on what plan you have selected / have created.

Any options as to what action to take when the screen/lid is closed? Mine has "turn off-sleep-hibernate-no action" etc.

Try reinstalling or check by your laptop's support site if there is an upgraded driver version. I would also follow the suggestions given prior.
