Cpu Sleep is ending my internet connection?

Message #1 - Posted 2006/03/20 - henree21

I have a dsl internet connection. Normally when I am connected to the internet, and my computer goes to sleep, the internet will still be connected. But all of a sudden today, when ever I leave my computer idle and it falls asleep, it disconnects me from the internet. Does anyone know what might have set this off? And is there a way to correct this? My energy settings are the Same as usual. Which is to sleep after 1 minute of inactivity.

There could be all sorts of reasons for this. Your provider could have changed something that requires a response from your station, which it is unable to do if it is asleep.

Get a NATing edge box of some sort and hook that up to the ADSL modem.
