Hi,

Windows Vista gets lost in some time. I have a Vista Ultimate machine which we connect remotely. When i connect in couple of hrs again it does not ping and denies RDP.

But the machine is ON.
When a engineer on the remote site loggs in it starts pining.

What could the problem be?

Regards
Sharath

Is it going into sleep mode and shutting off the NIC??  Then when the engineer logs on locally it comes back??  Maybe check that under the power settings.
