  1. Hi all!

    My problem is that I try to send my sister a file via Skype (Pretty big file)
    so I send it with hope I go to sleep and when I wake up it will be sent but what happends is that every time the screen saver goes on the internet connectivity goes off. Is there any way to fix this (except turning of the screen saver)?

    The system is:

    Amd Athlon 64 +3000 Cpu On Gigabyte Ga-k8 board.
    Running Vista Ultimate
    Connection through Trendnet Router (TEW-432BRP) (Wired)

    Thanks in advance!

    Are you sure it is a screensaver and not your computer going to sleep?
