I am not sure this is completely on-topic for this forum, but here goes:
I have a small peer to peer network. All computers are using XP Home. One of the computers acts as a file server for the other four computers and is never used as a work station.
From time to time, I am not able to contact the file server and have found this is because it has gone into stand by from lack of actvity. So my question is this:
What is the best way to handle the power management of this file server? Should I just set it to never go into standby/hibernate? Or so I try to impletment a "Wake on Lan" solution?
