i have a mid 2010 mbp 15" running 10.8.2 that drops wifi connection when "locked" using the switch user menu. However if i let the screen timeout to my screensaver, and then move the mouse. It wakes back up and shows me the lock screen with my wallpaper and username but the wifi is still connected.
This happens across what seems to be all wifi networks whether it be a starbucks, hotel room, work, or even my home network.
Is this by Design? If not, how do i fix it?
If it is by design, is there anyway around this or any way to assign a shortcut key to the timeout lock screen versus the switch user lock screen?
I use alfred app to lock my PC most of the time by pressing something like
alt + space and typing
lock. This triggers the fast user switching screen. So i would love solutions that pertain to what im used to versus installing a seperate app just for my lock screen shortcuts.
