G4 500 with OS 9.1 disconnects itself from the network when it goes into sleep? We have a G4 and whenever it goes to sleep whether the user puts it to sleep or the energy saver puts it to sleep the network connections are disconnected. I reverted the energy saver back to OS9.0.4 and removed the energy saver 9.1 preferences and the problem still occurs.

any ideas

That's just how it goes, I believe. It's always been that way for me. Hell, I sure can't communicate when I'm asleep, I guess I never expected my G4 to. ;)

We have 10 other macs that retain file sharring connections on sleep. I am using a G4 450 and with OS 9.0 and 9.0.4 and my G4 is fine. We constantly need info from other computers on the network so if one computer goes to sleep and filesharring is turned off we cant access that info.

yes that is whats supposed to happen, your other g4 that retian the connection when in sleep are probably not in deep sleep, because the only thing that is basicly powered in deep sleep is the ram, id just disable sleep in the enrgey saver control panel

How do you change deep sleep? I fiddled with the energy save prefs and for some reason when the G4 goes into sleep by itself the filesharring is kept on but if I attempt to put the computer to sleep i get a message that the G4 will lose network connections.
