Windows – Network disconnection on locking the the windows. (WIN+L)

windows 7

Wherever I lock my system, the network (WIRED LAN) disconnects automatically. When I unlock it, only then it connects back. So, while in locked state, all the processes (which are using network) like Outlook, Chat messenger (Lync) goes offline.

Best Answer

Change your Network Card Power Saving Settings. Go to

Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter Settings

Select your Wired Lan Adapter Properties. In the power management tab
Uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"

You can change advance power saving settings from Power Options in Control Panel.
