I recently bought a late 2012 i7 mini which is having problems waking up. I upgraded to 16gb of memory, and am booting from an external SSD in a USB3 case. When the computer wakes from sleep, it takes a very long time to reestablish an internet connection. I have never had this problem with previous Macs. Also I quite often get the spinning beach ball especially in Apple Mail on reawakening. The only thing I can do at that point is shut the computer down and reboot it. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to what might be causing this behavior. Thanks for any help.
