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.
