I occasionally see that it takes a minute or so for NM to re-scan on
resume.  If it fails to connect after that time, I've had success with

     1. Stopping NM
     2. Removing wireless driver
     3. Re-installing wireless driver
     4. Restarting NM

It may also help to create /etc/pm/config.d/unload_modules containing

        SUSPEND_MODULES="<your wireless driver>"
