Simply you need to have someone physically logged in to be able to use

ssh, which doesn't make sense as ssh is primarly useful when you are away
from the computer.

Think leaving the computer at home knowing you will connect to it from
work. Before you leave you log in to establish a network connection.
During your trip, there is a micro outage of power, the computer reboots
without any problem, but as noone is logged in any more, the sshd is not
accessible. This is a problem introduced by NetworkManager and its
concept of setting the network up only when someone is logged in front of
the computer.

The simple solution to this is start the NetworkManager daemon on boot and have the init scripts initially bring(or try to bring) up a network interface.


Just my simple view from the outside ;)
