Exclamation Wireless after closing the lid

Hey all
after i close the lid on my Fedora 10 laptop it shuts off the wireless.
I can live with that.
How ever after i open the lid and log back on the wireless does not automagicly come back.
I have to manually (whine whine whine) right click on network manager and select enable networking. Even after that it only sees a few wireless networks, not mine of course. I have to connect to someone else and then connect to mine.

Is the system sleeping or hibernating when you close the lid? or are you closing the lid, and the system remains fully operating?

I'm not sure if this will interfere with network manager:

       The  following  is  a list of variables that can be put in the configuration file, with an
       example in parentheses.  * marks the default.  For the meaning of suffix, see the  section
       Multiple addresses.

       STARTMODE {manual*|auto|hotplug|ifplugd|nfsroot|off}
              Choose when the interface should be set up.
              manual Interface  will be set up if ifup is called manually (without option boot or
              auto   Interface will be set up as soon as it is available (and service network was
                     started).  This  either happens at boot time when network is starting or via
                     hotplug when a interface is added to the system (by adding a device or load-
                     ing  a driver). To be backward compliant onboot, on and boot are aliases for
                     This mode is nearly the same as auto.  The difference between auto and  hot-
                     plug is that the latter does not make rcnetwork fail if the interface cannot
                     be brought up.
                     The interface will be controlled from ifplugd. At initial ifup only  ifplugd
                     will  be started for this interface. Then if ifplugd detects a link if calls
                     ifup  again  which  finally  sets  the  interface  up.  See  also   variable
                     IFPLUGD_PRIORITY below.
                     Nearly like auto, but interfaces with this startmode will never be shut down
                     via rcnetwork stop.  ifdown <interface> still works. Use this when you use a
                     root filesystem via network.
              off    Will never be activated.
Using "STARTMODE=auto" might help.
