it had a different IP, when you resume from hibernate it still has the same IP!!!!!!

Renew the IP address when it is connected to the work network or tell the fool to shutdown before they leave home to conserve battery power.

I seriously don't see your problem here ...

My own laptop always complained if I attempted to go online directly after recovery from hibernation.

However, once I thought about the 1GB I would be saving, I deleted the hibernation file and just shutdown completely.

Just shut the laptop down before transport. You're already wasting more time uselessly fumbling for a solution (docking, recovering, restarting) than it would take to boot from cold anyway!
