Turning off the desktop effects did solve the restart problem.  There is 
still an issue with reconnecting to the wireless network after waking 
up.  Sometimes the network manager manages to reconnect but sometimes it 
does not.  When it does not I can see the wireless light flashing 
rapidly as if it is trying to reconnect but then it gives up.  Sometimes 
going through a sleep/wakeup cycle a second time solves the issue but in 
some cases it does not and the only way to reconnect to the wireless 
network is reboot the notebook.  Very frustrating.
