yeah well - <shrug>
Part and parcel of wifi I guess.
The only thing I could suggest is to have wifi icon showing in the menu bar and disconnect from there (just to make it easy) before sleep.
i've monitored iPhone and Airport n activity on my modem thru the DHCP client lists and noticed the same thing - they can stay connected for quite a while before finally giving up - lol

Funny thing is that you think your saving power having the laptop sleep with the lid open "even while on battery", the wifi is still sucking power.
I wonder if its the MBP, or the wifi card?
