Mark,
Same problem occurred this afternoon.
I was working on the computer when friends arrived. We had a cuppa and a choccy biscuit.
When I got back to the machine it had shut down and when I moved the mouse the login screen showed.
I logged in and the WiFi tried a couple of times to connect with no success.
I logged in and out 3 times before I got a connection.
Any clues ?

If this is only happening after the PC goes to sleep, next time it happens (with the wifi dead) can you post the output from:
Code: [Select]
nmcli nm

Then see if running this command brings networking back to life:
Code: [Select]
sudo service network-manager restart

If not, try running this command and tell us if wireless springs back to life
Code: [Select]
nmcli nm enable false ; nmcli nm enable true

If that doesn't work can you tell us if a REBOOT (as opposed t a logout/login) re-enables wireless first time.

Hi Mark,
I will try those suggestions if the WiFi goes down again.
