    Is anybody else experiencing issues with the 15" RMBP where it doesn't re-connect to WiFi after opening the lid?

    It's reproducible every time for me. After I open it, everything resumes as normal in less than a second, but the WiFi stays grey and won't reconnect unless I click the menu bar icon, wait for it to search for networks, and select a network.

    Then, after a few seconds, I get a message about how it couldn't connect to the WiFi network because it timed out (I'm guessing this is a lagging popup from the attempt on wake, because by this time it's stably connected to the WiFi I just clicked on).

    It would be good to know if it's widespread or just me. If it's just me I'll go the Genius Bar; if others are affected I'll report a bug.

    Go to your WIFI's Preferred Networks pane, delete all entries that you don't use everyday.
