I have just purchased my first Mac and loving it.
My Mini Mac starts up fine and the wireless connects to the hidden WPA2 network no problem. However, if the Mac goes to sleep, when it wakes up, it does not appear to reconnect automatically and I have to make manual connection entering the network name, security type and password. Have I missed a setting somewhere? thanks
