Losing Internet Connection on Sleep
Something appears to be wrong with my new cMBP and Mountain Lion.
I'm not sure of the exact cause, but it seems like when the Screen-Saver comes on or it goes to Sleep that I am losing my Wi-Fi Connection...
Yesterday I had both my old MacBook and new cMBP out while I continued to set things up on my new cMBP.
On my old MacBook (this one) with Snow Leopard, I have the following settings...
Energy Saver: Battery Computer Sleep: 5 minutes Display Sleep: 5 minutes _x_ Put the hard-disk to sleep when possible _x_ Slightly dim the display when using this power source _x_ Automatically reduce brightness before display goes to sleep Power Adapter Computer Sleep: 5 minutes Display Sleep: 5 minutes _x_ Put the hard-disk to sleep when possible ___ Wake for network access _x_ Automatically reduce brightness before display goes to sleep ___ Start up automatically after power failure
Desktop & Screen Saver: Start screen saver: 3 minutes
(**NOTE: My main goals are that I want the security of a screen-saver, but also do NOT want anything to disrupt my recording of Streaming Audio in the background!!!
If I get up and walk away, I expect my screen-saver to come on and protect my laptop, but I want everything running in the back ground as normal!!)
I don't have my new cMBP with me here at work, but I believe I have the settings set in a similar manner in Mountain Lion.
On to the problem...
Yesterday I was working primarily from my old MacBook, and when I would go back to my new cMBP, the screen-saver would always be on.
After logging back in, I noticed that my Personal VPN connection and Wi-Fi Internet Connection always seemed to be down...
I played around with the settings on my new cMBP, and tried to make them similar to this old MacBook, but the problem persisted.
Once I get my new cMBP finally set up, I will be *really mad* if I am recording a radio show, my screen-saver comes on and/or my laptop goes to sleep, and I end up losing my Internet Connection?!
It seems to me like there is a bug with Mountain Lion, but who knows?!
Any idea what might be the problem?
Is it a setting issue?
Or is ML screwed up?
