In device manager find your network device and check through the properties to see that it is not set to shut off as a power saving feature.

Are you using ethernet or wifi? Do you make your computer standby when you leave?

DogSnake, it is not set to shut off as a power saving feature. Nothing is checked. fb39ca4, I am using wifi. I will check if computer is on standby. Is that under computer properties?
Thanks to both of your for your replies!

I found it! I think it was set to turn off under power saving feature. So I changed it and we shall see! Thanks so much. It was driving me crazy!

nThe resolution is to go to device manager and turn off the bluetooth unit. Then disable My Wi-Fi Technology. This worked for me.
