    Loosing Ethernet Only When my PC Goes To Sleep

    Okay so I stated, I keep loosing Ethernet Connection ONLY when my PC goes to sleep for Example: (I leave my PC on and go somewhere for about an hour or something the PC goes to sleep mode after 30 minutes) so every time this happens I loose my Ethernet Connection... but it always comes back about 5 minutes after it wakes up, it acts as if the Ethernet gets un plugged during it's "Sleep Period" and then when I move the mouse or something the Ethernet is gone but I have noticed almost as if the Ethernet Connection is asleep and comes on after the PC wakes up if that makes any sense.

    Hopefully I posted this in the Correct place on this Forum.

    That is a part of the S3 state when you allow it to go to sleep.

    Welcome to TenForums @Ryan94

    Have you got the Creators Update? After I upgraded to 1703 I had a similar problem with my WiFi not reconnecting when resuming from hibernation. The fix was the opposite of what you might reasonably expect...

    I reconnect reliably now in 1703. I went into Device Manager, looked at the Properties of my Wireless Network Adapter and on its Power Management tab turned ON 'allow the computer to turn of this device to save power' (I'd had it unticked in 1607).
