When my computer comes out of suspend mode (Laptop), I m not able to send or receive messages.
This also occures when I pull out the networkcable and put it in again.
Is there to receive and send messages again in such a situation?

Try opening a DOS window and typing

ipconfig /renew

This should renew any lost connections, assuming you have DHCP installed on the network.

There are a lot of known problems using resume mode. It is not very reliable yet.
Have you installed the newest drivers for your machine ?
have you done the Win2k windowsupdate ( start button and then  windowsupdate ) ?

I hope this helps.

Can you send or receive messages to machines on your local subnet?  This relies on a standard broadcast so if your machine has an active network connection and other machines it can reach on the same subnet, then the net send should succeed.

What I do is, I log off at home and go in suspend mode.
At the office I come out of suspend mode and log on under a different user id. (At home I log on localy, at work I log on under a domain).
I am still able to receive broadcasts, but cannot send or receive personal messages.
I ran the Windows update and ipconfig /renew but it didn't help.
Both network are DHCP and for the rest, all other network applications work fine.

What I mean is try and perform a net send, first against a username that you know resides on the same subnet as yourself, second to the machine that that person is using and third, to either a username or machine name that you know to be on a differet subnet.

....it'll confirm a theory I have about this problem.

We only have one single subnet 255.255.255.0
We are quite a small company ;0)
Neither userID or computername work.

Go to services and stop and restart the messenger service. It's possible that suspend mode might have killed it.

Hibernate instead of suspending.
Control Panel -> Power -> Hibernate -> Enable

I don't have enough disk space for that.
It seems I cannot tell W2K where to store the hybernate file.

It's fairly common that some services don't come back after a suspend in NT. Glad it worked :)

My advice would be - buy a larger hard drive! (You're running out of space anyway)
