Windows 7 - folder sharing problem

  1. Every time I turn the computer on, I can see the shared folders that are my two other computers. The problem is, when I close the lid of the laptop and reopen it, I can no longer see the shared folders. Even if I hit refresh multiple times, the folders don't appear until I restart. It is really annoying and frustrating. Please help!!

    After Standby or Hibernation, you've lost the connection(s) to the other shares

    If you have two systems with one share each, then use the command prompt or RUN to access:

    Thanks you very much for replying jobeard. That worked perfectly :)

    You are right, when the computer goes into sleep mode the connection is lost, because it stopped happening after I changed the setting to "Do nothing" when I close the lid.
