I used the modem for fax, any idea why the modem status will be offline after certain time ?

FYI, the modem is connected to a 4 port usb hub which also connect a printer.

If the modem is self powered, it is probably going into sleep mode after a period of inactivity, it does this based on being used with a laptop. Most modems also have a power supply which you can connect  .  This would sort your problem

Right click 'My Computer' => choose 'manage' => choose the 'Device Manager' section => choose 'Modems' and expand it => Right-click the modem and choose 'Properties' => go to 'Resources' and verify that the 'Wake On' power settings is not checked.

Thank for your reply.

The modem do not have any extra power supply and 'Wake On' power settings is not checked.
Is there any program or setting to prevent it from going into sleep mode ?

Yah....

In two manners;

The BIOS:
1. Entering the BIOS and change the 'Power' settings...
2. Also, I would suggest to change any PnP settings to be controlled via the OS and not the BIOS (it may be slower but more reliable).

From the OS:
Just disable power settings via the following:
Right-Click 'Desktop' and choose 'Properties' => choose 'Screen Saver' => click 'Power' and choose 'Power Scheme' as 'Never'.
