    Hey guys.

    I am having problems staying connected to Live messenger while computer goes to sleep. When I connect to Live messenger, of course, everyone can see me as "online". Then, after 10 mins my computer goes to sleep and now I am offline for everyone. Is there a way to put computer to sleep but still stay online and wake up if someone sends me an instant message?

    I use a Linksys Wireless-G USB Adapter. Model: WUSB54GC. And I run Windows Vista Business edition with SP1.

    Thanks for any feedback!
