Screensaver "no files to display in the folder"

I have a gpp and a gpo combined so that we can have informational pictures for screensavers.  My machines are set not to be in sleep mode and the screensavers are on a share on the network. Through lots of configuring I manged to get the photo's on a network share and I have them pointing via the registry.  So the pictures are being read via a network share that everyone except admins have read only permissions. Now suddenly this is "hot" issue because my company was to display educational materials via screensavers.  What's happening is I'm getting machines reading errors saying No files to display in the folder after the machines are just sitting. If you hit the space bar and go back on the machine when it's start to go to the screensaver again, it's fine.  I'm not sure if this can be fixed or not.  But if anyone knows please let me know.

thanks but that's not really my issue.  My pictures are on a network share, and the powersettings are set to be on all the time.  The low power makes me think that some how after a certain period the machine is just cutting off the network?  But I'm not sure.

Yes it could be that low power mode drops power to the network card?

When you go into Device manager and look at the properties of the network card, do you get the Power Management Tab?

This could be set to "allow the computer to turn off the device to save power"

Might be worth looking?

Actually I stand corrected!  You are correct this is the powermanagement setting on the Nic card both boxes are checked!  Is there a GPO I can user to shut it off?

OK I can see this needs to be done manually. The registry setting is no where to be found.
