I don't think it's your wifi card, but it could be that your router is sending too weak a signal after its been left for some time (and hence your laptop cannot 'see' it), and the signal improves with a reset. The next time you switch on your laptop, try doing so next to the router and see if the problem still occurs.

Make sure your laptop is not powering down the wireless card - device manager - right click wirelss adaptor -power setings (tab)

maybe also change the channel you are using in the router

As you say, many network cards have trouble reconnecting if the are allowed to sleep to save power. I've just spent several hours looking to see why my new wireless card was dropping connections. It was sleeping every time my screen saver came on and refusing to resart. I found that disabling and re-enabling it in control panel saves a reboot to kick it into life. I may well create a little script file that I can put on the desktop to do just that.
