comment When waking from sleep, the wifi doesn't turn on
So it did not keep working and in fact completely died at the end of the that day (from comment above). I ordered a used, presumably working, wifi card and new ribbon cable. I received them today, replaced, and things are working again. So it does seem to be a bad card or cable. Normally I would not think the cable bad except that it seems like a delicate cable and had a small bend in it near the connection. I didn't want to wait for a second shipment if the new card didn't get wifi working. I replaced both simultaneously, so I don't know which was bad, but my wifi works!!!

I am still debugging this and I've tried so many things. I keep thinking it's a hardware thing and in particular a loose connection (like a cable). I think that in part because I've had the logic board and the display replaced. So today, I opened the computer, put a little pressure on all the Wifi cables (the 4 antenna cables and both ends of the ribbon cable), and unplugged the ribbon cable from the logic board and reinserted. Today, I have not seen the problem after doing this and I currently have been having the problem after every wake from sleep. I'll post an update in a week.

I'm hesitant to reinstall the OS, that's a lot of down time for my computer and I need it for work. I will do it after I've exhausted other options. I've still got options... my best bet currently is checking for a loose connection inside the hardware.

This doesn't allow the user to specify the mount point.

My need is to stop notifications when Skype is not running.

comment How do I turn off push notifications without turning off notifications in iOS 6?
Good question. Push notifications are sent when the application is closed. If the application is open, it's not a push notification... I guess. What I know is that after I answered "yes" to the question "Allow Skype to send push notifications?" I started to receive notifications when Skype was closed. Before that, I only received notifications when Skype was open. My understanding of "push" is that the application doesn't need to be open or have a connection to a server. I understand that push really means server initiated. But that doesn't seem to be a sufficient definition here.
