Package: network-manager
Version: 1.14.6-2
Severity: normal

Sometimes when I open the lid on my laptop to unsuspend it after logging in I
get prompted for my wifi password. This happens about twice a month. One
network this happens is on my office network and I can't be certain that
nothing was changed there (although the IT people assure me they didn't change
anything). The other network is my home network where I can be certain that
nothing changes.

I expect that I should only have to enter a password once for each Wifi
network.

Can you provided a verbose debug log from NetworkManager when that
happens? https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/NetworkManager/Debugging has
some debugging hints.

How are the passwords stored? System-wide or in the user
session/keyring? If the latter, which desktop environment is this?
When you resume, is your desktop session locked? Is your keyring locked
as well?
