I have a couple of minor observations from the great unwashed - yes me.
One is that this solution perhaps wont have any effect when one boots to
the Gnome side. Two, this may be build version dependent, as there would
appear from some of the discussions in the group that there is an effort
for the 12.1.0 builds to more closely link the NM functions on Sugar and
Gnome so that settings are identical when restarting the other
environment. The echo script in boot startup and the corresponding entry
powerd resume , on the other hand, might handle both. Not sure yet, as I'm
still playing with WAP variants, and also, I am the newbie :-)
