protecting against WiFi loss

I have a laptop which wants to power down on a regular basis and as a result, the WiFi network connection goes away. originally I was thinking about using screen to protect my connections but what screen doesn't do is protect my forwarded connections (IMAP, X11, etc.) I also need to solve the problem of resizing the terminal emulator windows, completely transparent pipe to the other end (i.e. no special characters intercepted), and probably a few other things I can't think of right now.

I think it is best summed up as I am trying to preserve state about a connection and the application running on the connection with the end goal of restoring that state should the connection be broken.

am I better off sticking with screen and ignoring X% of its features or starting over again?

many thanks
