The last step is especially important for MacOSX laptops for either VPN because you do NOT want to put the computer asleep when you are connected through the VPN from home and try to wake it up from another network (such as the Biotechnology Building network). Doing so often causes you to have no network connection and can cause data corruption so beware!
