WiFi vs suspend

I have blundered into what may be a workaround for bug 10232

The fix is to edit
and add " -dddt" to the end of the Exec line.  It ends up looking like:
Exec=/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -B 
-u -f /var/log/wpa_supplicant.log -P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.pid -dddt
[That's one long line that got wrapped.]

After that change, I haven't had any hangs in over 24 hours.  Without that 
change, I get one in a few hours.

I'd be curious to see if it works for anybody else.

Don't forget that it doesn't wakeup on ARP packets so you have to manually 
setup the arp table entry on the machines that you expect to wake it up.

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