Usually when you connect there is a checkbox for remember this network. If you have that checked you should automatically connect up to a network if it is available.

But - if depends on the network - Some networks require re-authentication every time you connect - especially enterprise type networks like at work.

I've also found that if your SSID is hidden - you may also have to re-authenticate- It is part of the reason I turned on SSID broadcast - it really doesn't do anything to hide your SSID.

If you are to be using the Laptop in the same place often it may well be worth setting up a Location and selecting that each time.
