I think it just takes a while to get reconnected.

My model for returning from standby is that it throws away all the network 
state and goes through the same dance it uses at boot time.  I should time 
it, but it's "a long time" if you are watching it waiting for the first pass 
that tries to find a school server to time out.

These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's.  I hate spam.
