Regarding the problem with Dan's Mid-2011 MacBook Air not resuming a wi-fi connection after wake-from sleep, it seems this is related to absent bluetooth-paired peripherals. If the BT mouse and keyboard are out of range during wake-up, wi-fi will take a long time to connect (or fail to connect) unless it's initiated manually.
