    erm this isnt quite my feild of expertise but i would imagine if you go into control pannel, and then switch it to classic view (it might on already as im using XP and so i have to do it), then click on "power options" and simply change the settings of "turn off hard disks" etc to never
    or a preferred time scale
    i personally have my monitor on 20 minutes power off but switch to never if you want.

    let me know how you get on.

    First check the event logs for any error messages on failures, especially with the RPC service.

    Also, check to make sure that the power settings are disabled and the system is not entering a hibernation mode. Powering down network cards and hard disks can easily cause a server to fail.
