    Good Afternoon,

    I have this problem where we have

    6 x pc's and when left on at night they lose there authentification to the server and we end up having to reboot or start messing around with them!

    We are running Windows Server 2003 on the server is there anything I can do to stop this happening?

    Please help me on this one!!!

    Cheers

    Paul Wike

    Are you disconnecting the PCs from the server and taking them home on the bus at night?

    BBM is not joking here he is making a good point.

    Have you checked that your NICs are not being shut down by APM (advanced power management) or ACPI look for setting like Wake on LAN etc and set them to always on?
