Example:
After 10 minutes (approx) surfing, no more bytes are received although my pc sends a few (trying to make contact?)

Rebooting sorts out the problem.

Any ideas to stop my computer getting bored and going to sleep?

Update your antivirus, temporarily disable your screen saver (choose None) and scan with your anti-virus set to scan All Files. Update and scan bi-monthly.

You can scan on-line to double-check your Windows scanner at http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

*** Mandatory (get a firewall of any brand) - Get free Sygate personal firewall anti-hacker countermeasure from http://www.sygate.com. 'Don't let anything out to the Internet you don't know what it is.' Also please see http://www.firewallguide.com/ for more information on why all on-line home computers should be firewall enabled.

Call your ISP's technical support for more information if doing all the above does not work as a first troubleshooting step(s).
