 NetworkManager just keep connected to the Ad-Hoc network (if the WiFi chip
 remains powered) resp. reconnect to the Ad-Hoc network after resume?

 NetworkManager bring up the same connection after resume that it took down
 during suspend?

 Hmm, I tested with nm-applet to see if NM does bring up Ad-hoc networks
 after suspend. It works for networks that have the IPv4 method 'shared'
 but not 'link-local' ones. Will check if that is by design.
