Here is my problem;
I have several task's scheduled to run starting at 3:00am. My computer is in sleep mode and it awakes and completes all scheduled task's. One problem is I can not figure out how to have the computer automatically connect to the internet upon waking. If I move the mouse the connection is made and the network is available. I am running Syncback and trying to synchronize files with my work computer over a VPN connection "SONICWALL". As I said the computer is awake but does not log onto the network until I move the mouse or touch the keyboard. I'm sure it's a simple fix but it has thrown me for a loop. any suggestions? OS XP Pro, MB ASUS A8V Deluxe.
Hmmmm. Can you program a batch file that does a ping to any external URL? Maybe if you test your connection in this way, you can wake your network up. Or maybe it's something as easy as checking your nic card settings and disable the one that says this device can/cannot wake up your system.
