can not access file shares after WHS went to sleep RRS feed

  • Question

  • I place the WHS to sleep by the keyboard sleep button the first time and after waking up, all computers can not access the shared files including putting in the IP address. I can access the shared files on the server it self. I uninstall the AV software, checked the right work group, checked the (Static) IP address with no luck. I am able to ping it. Most PC's are win7x64 and XP. I also tried it in VMware. I have read most of the web sites but never found an answer.

    I also have a problem of having a max. of 8 PC's not 10. I had this for over a year. I need the other 2. Is there away to buy more clients?

  • Have you rebooted your server?
    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Thanks- Several times. I see others had this same problem after going to sleep (S3) which I don't know what S3 is. I used software to sleep for years and no problem. This is the only time I used the keyboard button.
