    My airport/wireless works fine most of the time, but sometimes when I close the lid, and reopen it, my airport will not turn back on. It turns on neither automatically nor through the preference pane. The button to turn airport on is clickable, but nothing happens.

    I'm new to Macs, and I like them so far. But this is getting really annoying as the only way I've found to fix it is to restart the computer.

    Resetting the SMC ought to do the trick. Putting the computer to sleep and then waking should reactivate the card but your computer seems to have some difficulty doing that on cue. If the above fix doesn't resolve the issue or it pops up again somewhere down the line bring it to an Apple authorized service provider or retail store.
