    I am very very happy about my new Macbook Pro. It is absolutely the best laptop I ever have owned. I used the migration assistant to transfer my Mac Pro settings and software to it when I just started it up, and have had almost no problems. One that is really bugging me is:

    I use a small Applescript to map to my NAS. Every line looks like;

    mount volume "afp://;AUTH=No User Authent@"

    This works fine, when the MBP starts up, it sees my WiFi, runs the script and mounts the connections. However, if/when the MBP fall asleep, and I wake it up, after a few seconds I get the following error message;

    "server connections interrupted", and then a list of all the mounts.

    I can either just close the error message, or I can wait a few minutes, and then all is fine. This works wonderfully on my Mac Air. Exactly the same script, same WiFi, same basic settings. So what gives???

    I never got a solid answer for the above post, and these days I am using a link to the volume in the login items to mount my shares. When mounted they look like this in the info;

    afp://NAS_NAME (AFP)._afpovertcp._tcp.local/SHARE_NAME

    The mounts are lightning fast, and this works fine on my MBA. However, on my MBP I still have the annoying issue that when it wakes up after sleep, I get the error message "server connections interrupted", and I loose all my mounts.

    Any suggestions how to fix this???

    Have you tried adding in the script, a little delay, perhaps a timer? The WiFi connects about 7-10 seconds after your computer comes out of sleep.

    I am not using a script anymore. I simply have the volumes added in the login items, and when I sign in, the mounts happen.

    However, when the laptop has been asleep, and I turn it on, of course the login items are not run again (only if you log out and then in again). If I immediately log out and then back in, after the MBP has been asleep, the mounts work.
