I doubt that there's anything that can be done about this, but I'm curious about why it happens...
When I put my deuced Mac(hina) to sleep by shutting the clamshell, iTunes sometimes makes an immediate connection with my Base Station when I re-open the clamshell and sometimes times out and reverts to my internal speakers, necessitating my re-selecting my Base Station.
Mail.app, on the other hand, invariably times out before fetching new mail.
Is the issue that iTunes is a slower starter than Mail and sometimes suffers from local interference...sometimes doesn't?
Thanks for any insight.
Edit: My Base Station and MacBook are 3 inches apart.
