Network applications goto sleep...

By g.charvat ·
I have a mixed environment -- an NT Small Business Server 4.5 -- and 22 assorted PCs (Windows 95/98/2000).

Everything seems to work fine unless you leave an application up for to long. Example: Outlook 2000 & Access 2000 -- when initially executed they work fine -- BUT -- leave them for a good length of time and they seem to go to sleep or lose their network connectivity.

Given much time they usually come back to life, but not always. Can usually go into task manager and terminate them,re-execute them, then alls okay. Or you can just reboot.

Is there a fix for this situation???

Applications do not usually go to sleep...

Make sure that you've turn off all power management (apci disable) in the bios of each of these desktops.

Look especially at hdd power management and NIC power management.

NIC power management is possible culprit but you should also look at all power management settings in Control Panel, hibernation modes and auto-disable NIC settings for newer Win2k systems (if NIC senses no traffic it will disable itself until you manually attempt to reattach).
