Any tips for D700 popup as CLS commander ?

Was in a 2 day lighting workshop this weekend (Don Giannatti's Lighting Essentials) working with several off camera speedlights (In my group we had Sb-600, 800, and some 900s). I kept having situations where a flash wouldn't fire.

Anyone have any good tips for getting CLS to work reliably? It was very frustrating. Would a different type Commander unit work reliably? Or is this just inherent in this design? A little surprised Nikon hasn't gone to some sort of wireless system, at least as an option.
