I've looked under print window as well as control panel, however there is no power option anywhere. I've even scrolled through the options on the printer itself. All it will allow me to do is delay the power saver by 240 minutes, but it will now allow it to be shut off.

Your power saving settings might be configured to disable WiFi if the laptop is not plugged in
The power settings will be in the screens saver section, and in the control panel under Power Options (or just search for Power Options).
Look at the settings for your power plan and tell it not to disable WiFi when not plugged in.
You can do this in the Power Savings options with Windows. For Windows 7, rght click on the display (anywhere with no icons or running programs) and choose Personalize. Click on Screen Saver in the lower right hand corner. Adjust the Wait time for the screen saver if desired and click Apply. Then click on Change Power Settings. This brings up the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Settings. Then click on Edit Power Settings for the active power plan. (For desktops it is usually the balanced power). Then change the setting for Turn off monitor to Never when plugged in. Also change the Sleep time for the computer to Never. You can do the same for when on battery but it will shorten the length of time that the computer will be able to run on the battery for laptops. Then Save Changes and close the windows.
For older versions of Windows, these advanced power settings are also available from the Screen Saver settings page but details may differ.
I hope this helps.

Check the power settings. Start/Control Panel/Power Options. There is a setting separate from the screen saver to turn off the screen in the Power Options control panel. DVD playback overrides the power options settings.
it sounds like your most likely having trouble with the hibernate feature try this
start>>control panel>>power options>> click on the hibernate tab un check enable hibernate mode
this should fix your issue
you try pressing the power button once? or maybe even pressing any keys.
also try adjusting your power management
vista) start. control panel. power option. Edit plan settings.
xp) right click anywhere. properties. screen saver tab. power management.
