    Hello gang, I was wondering if any of you have ever had this problem.

    My machine runs flawlessly on XP Home.

    But, whenever I leave the computer along for a while (several hours), but it
    is still on, whenever I come back to use it the thing will not connect to
    the web or to my mail server to check email.

    I will then have to reboot it and it is fine.

    I have tried shutting down ZA, but this still doesn't make it work.

    I do not have my computer set to hybernate. I have "turn off hard disk" and
    "system standy" set to NEVER. I only have the monitor set to turn off at 15
    minutes, so I don't see how this could be the problem.

    So *that's* what "flawless" means in the World of XP. ;)

    I have the same problem, and have tried the same solutions - anyone got any
    clues what's causing it?

    My machine runs - with flaws - on XP Pro...
    TIA
