    Since updating to Mountain Lion, I haven't had many problems.

    However, one of the few problems I have encountered is a particularly frustrating one.

    Messages (formerly known as iChat) disconnects my accounts when I put my Mac to sleep (as expected) but will not reconnect them automatically when I wake the Mac from sleep.

    It started happening at first with just the Yahoo account, but now happens with Yahoo, AIM, and Google Talk accounts.

    Naturally, the iMessage account always reconnects.

    I tried testing the issue in a new user account, and I've noticed that only the Yahoo account refuses to connect in the same scenario.

    Unsure how to troubleshoot this one...

    I have had the same problem with my Yahoo! account.
