Disassociated due to inactivity – RESOLVED

Infuriating wireless behaviour from my Apple MacBookPro5,3.
Every time it wakes from sleep, the wireless disconnects within about a minute and fails to re-join.

      @Ultraviolet : The post mentions I have this issue on a MacBookPro5,3 and these models lack an ExpressCard/34 slot.
