12-15-2009, 07:10 PM #1I dont want my Airport to turn off
Every time i open the lid to wake my Macbook Pro (specs in signature) the Airport has to reconnect to my wifi which takes 10-20 seconds and is very annoying (i know it doesn't sound very annoying but it is!), i would like to know if there was anyway i could stop my airport from ever going to sleep/shutdown is there any applications that would help me?
Thanks in advance. =]Hacking - Doing what the developers couldn't.

My Macbook Pro stays connected to my Airport Extreme while the Mac is sleeping. Internet is instantly available when I wake my Mac up. Your situation doesn't sound right to me. I don't know of any Mac control that would put Airport to sleep. Is it possible that your router is going into a standby mode?

I have an Airport Extreme as well, When i open my lid the Airport icon in the menu bar is gray then will show that it is connecting to the router, i cant find any thing in system preferences that makes/prevents this happening.Hacking - Doing what the developers couldn't.

I had this happen to me. What I did was to move the network session commonly used for the Airport to the top of the network list. No more problems. TRy looking up "Wake on Demand" I guess you are running Snow Leopard. You might also want check out MAC OS X Snow Leopard - the missing manual. Anyways I resolved my prob.

Make sure you have selected the 'wake for network access' as follows:

My guess is that Laptops that do a lot of roaming end up with heaps of data/settings for various networks and has to sift thru and sort it all. Have a location setup for home as it does make wireless life quicker- see this reply; http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/air...n-problem.html
