  1. can't find even by googling.

    Trying to do this:

    Here's how...
    Download a program called "sleep1.exe" from download.com or wherever.
    Save it in \windows\system32 .
    Create a batch file in \windows\system32 called "ping3.bat" with the following


    @echo off
    : pingsite
    sleep1 3
    ping -n 1 www.whatever_site_you_want.com > nul
    goto pingsite

    Create a shortcut to this batch file on your desktop, with properties:

    Shortcut / Run minimized.

    Simple answer: look for sleep.exe without the 1

    You don't need sleep exe for that batch file to work. The same effect can be achieved by:

    @echo off
    : pingsite
    ping -w 3000 -n1
    ping -n 1 www.whatever_site_you_want.com > nul
    goto pingsite

    you can replace with any nonexistent but legal IP address.

    BTW what is the purpose of this script? Some sort of a keepalive?

    Yes, it's my keepalive.

    It is for a cellphone connection that goes into a reduced state of responsiveness after 7 seconds of inactivity.

    But your batch file is just as good as mine, if not better. There should be a space between "n" and "1". Your timeout line will work without a second ping.

    @echo off
    : pingsite
    ping -w 5000 -n 1
    goto pingsite

    sleep1.exe is not the same file as sleep.exe or sleep88.exe. Strange that it doesn't even appear on webcrawler.
