    I have WiFi profiles setup and saved for home and work. I can connect to both manually with no problem.

    When I get to work, my Playbook automatically connects to WiFi. When I get home, it does not; it seems that the profile automatically turns itself off, and I have to reconnect manually. Any ideas?

    Thanks, Bruce

    Welcome to the forums.

    Only one: Delete the profile, reboot the PlayBook (turn it off, wait 30s, turn it on), add the network again.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I did so, but this has not resolved the problem.
