My Dell Optiplex GX520 goes offline

All,

I have an Optiplex GX520 that goes offline when screen saver kicks in and when on idle for for than 30 mins. Power settings are as follows:

Power Scheme:

Always On

Turn off monitor: never

Turn off hard disks drive: never

System Standby: never

Hibernate: unchecked

Notes: When the PC goes offline the EU does not have access to the LAN. 

Are there any settings that I may need to check i.e BIOS? The EU has to reboot everytime she is away for more than an hour. Any suggestions?

Thank You

MikeFCI

check the power settings for the network card itself

Re: My Dell Optiplex GX520 goes offline

I checked the power settings of the NIC

I did not think about adding the following info:

Internet access: good

I can ping both of my domain controllers via CLI while the mapped drives show disconnected from the affected workstation

What happens is that the mapped drive keeps disconnecting
