I have iMAC users who have the same problem with Adobe inDesign CS6. When they open an inDesign file that is located on a network drive, our file servers are Windows 2008 R2, and leave the file open and computer goes to sleep or locked after waking the computer up inDesign shows the message that Network connection to the FileName has been lost, and after clicking OK on the error message inDesign crashes. Does anyone have a solution for the problem?

Thank you,

Sergey

Adobe has responded to this issue on their forums and declared it to be the intended functionality:

The error for "The network connection was lost" is actually a feature put into InDesign by design. It's a protection mechanism that occurs when InDesign is unable to write to the file in question for a various number of reasons. By shutting down we do our best to preserve your file integrity through the restore function. If we didn't shut the process down you would run the risk of damaging your files with bad write data.

I would change the energy saving of the macs. Sleeping on the macs has always been a problem on networks.

Uncheck:
Put hard disks to sleep and all this.
Turn display off. Uncheck this.

Go to screen savers and have it activate in 5-10 minutes.

This means that the display will be spared but the computer will not go to sleep and will not loose contact with the network.
