Configuring IP Address after sleep?

I got my chromebook early through the Gilt presale.
I've embraced it and enjoy it.

Observation:
After waking from a sleep the chromebook needs to re-establish the wifi connection. It goes through Configuring IP Address and then Connecting. During this period of roughly 20 seconds (which wouldn't be a big deal except for on a machine that boots in 8 seconds), it's pretty much useless; all resources trying to establish a connection perhaps...

Meanwhile, I went and grabbed an ipad which has been asleep for a week and it had maintained its wifi connection and was online instantly.

First, anyone having similar experience?
Then, any known setting tweaks which might address this?

Thanks all.

Wifi resumes very quickly for me - certainly nowhere near 20 seconds. Might be dependent on your WLAN?

Thanks @russcasey for your reply.

Any thoughts why the chromebook might be delayed in connecting to this wireless network when other devices (like the ipad) are not?

I have similar issues on a couple of networks. It is enough of an issue to prevent me from recommending the Chromebook to others.

I'd recommend referring this one to one of google's Chromebook Ninjas - please let us all know how you get on!

No probs.
Just spotted this on the google support pages:

For advanced diagnostic information, press Ctrl+Alt+T and type network_ diag at the prompt.

I'm interested to hear what a Chromebook rep has to say once you hear from them. Would you mind sharing?
