Im using simple file sharing and trying to access a pc running XP Pro from another Pc running Windows 2000. When both Pcs are running theres no problem and i can access each others files sucessfully. Ive set the Pc (XP Pro) to go into standby and when i try to access it from the other Pc(2000) it just says "Network path not found" .

The only settings ive changed

In the Bios
Standby:S3 state
Power management:user define

In the OS in the properties section- network adapter(power management section) in the device manager.
Ive enabled "allow this device tobring the computer out of standby"
and also "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
(Ive tried every combination of these settings!)

Ive also tried setting the PCI card in the Bios to bring it out of standby but it still wont! What am i doing wrong? Could it be drivers or something?
