Mystery solved. I uninstalled the

Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter and

 

Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter # 2

 

in the device manager and restarted the computer.

The error message about Intel My WiFi Technology Adapter not found no longer happens during sleep.

Additional information...

I usually uncheck the power management boxes but for the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter and Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter # 2, you cannot uncheck these boxes.
