Proper disabling of WiFi power management

Hi,

I have an Acer Aspire One and the power management for WiFi connections is on by default, causing really bad connection quality. I know how to turn this off:

sudo iwconfig power off

To make it permanent, as a dirty hack I can just add this line to /etc/rc.local, for instance. However, I would like to know what the proper way to change this setting is. I tried changing various settings in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts but no luck.

Can someone help?
