    Have you run any anti-spyware or anti-virus? Also clean your temporary files out using disk clean..

    The only other thing I can think of to suggest is go to your control panel, click on system and maintenance, power options, choose a power plan and go through to the advanced options by clicking on the little blue writing 'change plan settings', then click 'change advanced power settings' you'll then see a box which you have to go through making sure you keep anything from hibernating or going to sleep..

    There's a possible loss of wireless connectivity due to hardware failure. I've heard of problems with the Belkin Wireless Card Disconnecting, also the Belkin Router. Far fetched ? Not at all, I have my notebook set so that it never sleeps. I unplug it from the wall and go battery. After about a day and a half, I'm down 5% on power. I'm always nursing my downloads because if I walk away and it goes to a screen saver, it suddenly disconnects from the Internet. If I stop that function, that won't happen, and I'm currently using dial-up. I believe it might be something to due with the wireless card, maybe the wireless card itself, because I also require special Internet service. If it's not that, it's some little part. You might try investing your wireless set-up, going over possible causes for disconnection. This has saved a few disconnects for me.... see below
