    One of my work laptops has just been upgraded and I'm now forced to run the
    Very Incompetently designed, STupidly implemented operAting system
    (VISTAsucks) on that laptop. Fortunately, all of my other computers are
    remaining XP for the time being.

    On this computer, a Dell Latitude D630, if the computer goes to sleep,
    hibernates, or even if the disk drives shut down -- once I bring the
    computer back up into operation, I'll get a message telling me that my
    network adapter is on. Five seconds later a message that my network adapter
    has been powered off to save power, Five seconds later a message to tell me
    that my network adapter is on. Five seconds later a message that my network
    adapter has been powered off to save power. Five seconds later ...

    I can't tell what's actually happening, because sometimes I can still get
    out to the network and sometimes I can't. Mostly I can't when this happens.

    I've set every setting I can find to tell the system to keep the network
    adapter running when I power back up. That includes:

    Control Panel > Power Options > Edit Plan Settings,
    Control Panel > System > Device Manager > Network Adapters,
    Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection > Power Management, and
    Dell Quickset > Internal Network Card Power Management.

    Anybody have an suggestions for me please?

    If your Company upgraded your Laptop, give it back and have IT resolve the
    issue
