NDISTest 6.5 - WlanSoftAPPower

These automated test suites put the SoftAP device in different power states, such as hibernate and resume, and verifies that the SoftAP does not beacon on resume. This test also verifies when power save mode is enabled on the client and then buffers the data to the client from the access point according to the 802.11 specification.
