Ubuntu Lucid WiFi Problems

Ive been having problems with my Wifi in Lucid. It disconnects after it locks the screen and it's very hard to get WiFi working again. In order to get it going again I do the following commands.

sudo su #Change to root
modprobe -f -r ath5k
rfkill block all
rfkill unblock all
modprobe ath5k
ifconfig wlan0 up

What's even stranger is that it takes a lot of iterations of the above commands in order for WiFi to be restored. Is any one else experiencing this?
