You can try reset instead of cardmgr restart.  Quoting from README:

iwpriv wlan0 reset <val>
        0: perform soft reset of the card
        1: perform COR sreset (almost hardreset ;-)
        2: perform port reset (disable and enable port 0)

1 is the hardest, 2 is the softest, 0 is intermediate.  Find the softest
reset that works for you and put it to the script you run after wake-up.
