    Windows 10

    Delay, cannot connect to network path on my NAS

    I have a Windows 10 Pro 64bit box as my NAS
    Storage Spaces, ReFS, 2 drives mirrored
    HDD sleep on idle
    Hibernate/Sleep disabled

    My problem is when I typically save or open a file with the Windows file dialog on any Windows 10 machine, and I try to go to that machine through the network path //MyNAS/MyFiles, it initially gives me a cannot connect or find error.

    Is this due to the dialog not waking up the drives on the NAS? Something is obviously asleep here, and I usually end up opening Total Commander or Windows Explorer to "wake up" the connection and then everything works. I don't mind waiting, but I'd like the dialogs to hold tight until it connects, not give me not found or cannot connect.

    Saw something similar with my Linux based NAS. My workaround was to disable sleep on the NAS but it would be nice to see a 'proper' solution as we should be able to save power and wear.
