when computer goes to screensaver I loose my wi-fi internet connection and have to reboot. Note: my network card is set that it is always powered on and does not go to sleep. So it's not that. If I run a program that goes full-screen which keeps the comp. from going to screensaver then my connection stay good. I really need to fix because it's a pain to have to keep rebooting and when I have to leave for a short-while, I have lock the comp. for privacy reasons. Which means a reb a reboot when I get back - and reloading any programs and web pages i was working on. Note: Zonealarm is set to allow internet access during screensaver.
If a screensaver is causing you issues why are you continuing to use it? and are you sure you have checked your power settings in control panel? Too much of a coincidence that you lose wifi when the screensaver kicks in.
It's not the power settings. I guess I didn't explain that well enough in my question. And you ask why do I continue to use the screen saver? I cannot use it AND I want too AND that is the problem. And c'mon now, is it really necessary for me explain the many good reasons why I'd want to use it? You did not pay adequate attention to my question and you have been no help at all.
