Is there a way to make SMB shares persist regardless of network connectivity in 10.14, or am I better off just making aliases for the shares I care about and using those? Seems a little kludgy.

My impression is a network mount that's not in use when you go to sleep, will quietly reestablish in the background when you wake up. ie - the mounted volume will only vanish if it can't reestablish, or if you try to use it before it reconnects. I haven't tested it recently though.

That's kind of what I remember with my MBP (which I admit has remained unused for months). This early 2015 11" MBA seems to lag like a mofo on the network after waking from sleep.

Like, just now I woke it up to do things, and it took way too long before I could load anything in Edge.

I think that might be interfering with my SMB connections.
