Does anybody know why a network user account sometimes takes (what seems like) an eternity to wake from sleep? In my office it is customary for us to put our computers to sleep if we're away from them for a while, it saves people seeing things they shouldn't or doing things they shouldn't. Now I have both a Mac and a PC at my desk, the PC is fine with this and is also a network user machine. The Mac (Quad G5 - 10.4.7) will sometimes wake from sleep and present me the password box immediately, other times it'll take upwards of 3-5 minutes to respond. I'll just get the spinning beachball and eventually the login screen. Now if it did this all the time then I'd be less concerned but it's maybe 50/50 which makes me think there must be some way of avoiding it. Any ideas?
