MacBook loses WiFi connection when going to sleep.

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Paul Tarantino, Jan 2, 2007.

  1. My wife's MacBook (and her iBook before it) loses its wifi connection to our
    cable modem when it goes to sleep, so she must log on again, with a
    password, even if she just had the computer closed for a few minutes. This
    may be a "feature" but it's an annoying one for her. Is there a way for the
    computer to log back on automatically (a script or something?) when it wakes
    up?

    TIA

    Does it help to remove the checkmark from "Disconnect when I log out" in
    System Preferences > Network > Airport > Options?
