The new 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Pros with Retina display are hands down the best laptops Apple has ever made. Yet there seems to be a growing number of issues related to sleep and Wi-Fi connectivity with the flagship laptops. Besides Apple’s support forum threads which detail the issues and some readers contacting us reporting the same thing, I can also confirm my new MacBook Pro seems is quite buggy when waking from sleep in the morning.
After waking from sleep — and though the Wi-Fi signal will show a connection — my MacBook Pro won’t be able to access the Internet. The solution is simple enough: turn Wi-Fi off and then turn it back on again. But while it’s an easy fix, it’s also an annoying one to do on a multiple-times-a-day basis. Keep in mind, however, that whether this issue affects a limited number of units, or is more widespread, Wi-Fi and sleep issues like this can often be eliminated with a firmware update.
