Re: Standby/Hibernate blows out wireless connection

Posts: n/a
I'm a big fan of the fact that my wired PC will always wake from hibernate
when a laptop or PC joins my network wirelessly. I have my bios set not to
wake on lan, but it does anyway, always when I don't want it to.

I come out of a Compaq and IBM shop, both major partners with MS and both have substantial issues with standby ranging from not working at all to working 2-3 times then failing. Even the Dells I have some experience with have the same issues fresh out of the box without any other software other then Dell supplied. IBM has told me on a number of times that some of the "issues" are really from the certification tests being conducted witha certain level of Windows XP and then the hostfixes/SPs screw everything up. We tell our remote users to never use standby if they value their information. Hibernate works mostly but even then there have been issues.
