I haven't used this for long, but I've found that if I change the Power
Management setting for my Ethernet Card to select "Allow windows to turn this
off to save power" I do not lose my Internet connection when returning from
Sleep or Hibernation. This was suggested in a post from March 3rd, where a
poster said that Microsoft Support suggested it. It goes against everything
I've learned & told others about network cards, but it works. It must allow
Sleep to turn off the card and then restart it properly.
Now if only I could get Vista to stop dropping my DVD-RW drive after Sleep,
I'd be happy.
