6 XP Pro PC's connecting to Server 2003 SBS - All network connections work fine during the day but if any machines are left on overnight the mapped network drives are not accessible.  These PC's have to log off and then log back in again to regain connections.  I have turned off the power settings on the network cards on both pc's and server ... used the autodisconnect to -1 command and it still keeps cutting out!!!  HELP!

Hello theconfusedbear,

Then On the XP Client

Click Start >Run >Type "gpedit.msc" {enter}

Navigate to

Local Computer Policy >Computer Configuration >Windows Settings >Security Settings >Local Policies >Security Options

Scroll down to

"Microsoft Network Server: Amount of idle time required before suspending session"

The default is 15 minutes change it to 99,999

Regards,

PeteLong
