Re: Vista slow to reestablish network after wake from sleep
Scott-- I found that turning off -all -the sleep options, -including
shutting down the display-, solved the problem.
All I had had checked under Power Options was "Turn off the display
after 30 minutes." All of the advanced power settings were "Never," or
"Maximum performance," or words to that effect. (I still have the hard
drive spin down after 20 minutes, but that isn't a Power Option,
although it should be. I forget exactly where that setting is.) And when
I touched the mouse or keyboard to turn the monitor back on, the
computer would generally take 1-10 minutes to reestablish a network
connection, including printers, network attached storage devices, and
So, I rtied setting the display option to "Never" (turn off the
display), and that worked! The network remains up whenever I need it. Of
course, I have to remember to manually turn off the display, the way we
used to do it under Windows 3.1, something they don't mention in those
"I found a computer for $1500 and it's a PC" ads.
Hope this kludge helps you.
