Sleep Mode - Network Connections

running vista ultimate 32-bit (systems config below)... is there any way to
keep vista from thrashing my internet connection when i put it in sleep mode
? NIC adapters are set NOT to turn off under power management... it doesn't
seem to matter... i have to repair the connection every time when the thing
wakes up. Vista recognizes my router as a network device (not in device
manager) but there are no power settings there and the router's never turned
off. anyone got any ideas ?

I have a Vista Ultimate 32bit. My checkbox on Broadcom Net card is set to
YES:

"Allow the computer to turn this device to save power."

I never lose Internet or Lan for this matter.

What kind of router is it? If it is a Linksys or similar like Netgear
perhaps you should check with the maker. They are cheep devices.

Vista is not responsible for your router.

What this seems to indicate is that the power settings for the NIC are
irrelevant... Either that or the drivers for my NIC (nvidia) suck... do you
actually use "sleep mode" ? I don't think it has anything to do with the
router...

It is hard to understand what you are trying to ask. If your question is:
"Do I use sleep mode?" YES, I do.

If you don't think the router is responsible, good for your router.

I don't think I can be of any more help to a person who believes that Vista
is responsible for everything including his leaky roof.

no answer. can only reply that I have the same problem. Ever since I
changed the motherboard my Vista PC has had problems with restarting
from sleep mode. Also, after the install of the new M/B the PC takes
60 seconds to connect to the internet. Prior to the new M/B the
initial connect to the network was much faster.

Thanks Brink... the tutorial was very insightful but no "joy" in fixing the
problem... my BIOS is set to support S1 and S3 ACPI but there's no "wake on
lan" except for advanced settings in the device driver itself... which are
set to "enabled"... In toying with this I've gotten some pretty spectacular
results... like a BSOD BUG_CODE_USB_DRIVER (0FE) and the whole ACPI being
lost in device manager on return from "sleep"... It also failed to recognize
my battery UPS system on resume... I'm presuming at this point that it's
another one of the many Vista shortcomings... maybe SP1 will fix it... In
the meantime, any other thoughts would be helpful...

thanks... t

Hi Timb,

You might check in the BIOS for a "Wake on LAN" or "Wake on Ring"
setting to make sure that they are enabled.

alexB was right to suggest the 'Allow computer to turn off device to
save power' option (in the properties of your NIC); that (I'm sure
you've figured out by now) should have taken care of the situation.

But, he immediately went on to (wrongly) imply that your router was
probably the problem, and that you were inappropriately blaming Vista
for 'everything under the sun (or rain).' And, in that sense, I think
alexB was being a bit of a (dismissive) jerk.

In fact, it is an OS 'problem,' in that you have to tell the OS exactly
what you do -and don't -want it to do.


AlexB? Where is that old clown these days? He knew as little as Frank, but
was much more entertaining!
