    I have never heard of the screen saver cutting off the network/internet, but it leads me to think of 2 other possible problems, 1 which I am battling fiercely right now....

    The easy one is a "power saving" setting might be turning off the network adaptor when the computer goes into screen saver mode -- That is easy to fix in the power settings (may be in advanced settings for the network adaptor and/or power options).

    The other one is that it is simply disconnecting for no reason at all -- the problem I am having, and many other people in other forums I have visited looking for a fix. I have had my computer for a little over a year now. Ever since I got it, I would have wifi issues from time to time, but USUALLY changing the rf channel (on the router) would fix it for a few months. Now, after anywhere from 1 minute to several hours, it will disconnect from the web, and the network access would switch from "Local And Internet" to "Local Only". In actuality, I cannot even ping my router and all access stops at that point. Also, the wifi speed would drop from 54mbps to either 10mbps or 1 mbps! Sometimes turning off the adaptor (using the switch on the side of the laptop) would fix it for a little while, or restarting the computer would fix it. The signal still shows full on the bar, the whole time. I have a static ip address to my router (a linksys wrt54gs), and the desktop (on a hardwire) still works. Also, my pda will stay connected to the router via wifi, so I dont think its a router issue. My issue mirrors the same issue MANY people are having, from what I read all over forums everywhere, but I have not seen a fix anywhere yet. I did see one link to "vista antilag" on a gamer site, and I tried it. IT seems to be holding much better since I installed it, but I did lose connection a couple of times since the installation. If anybody has seen this and knows the answer, PLEASE SHARE IT!!!!
    Thank you
