    You can go to Start > Settings > Control Panel in Win 95, 98, ME or 2000, In Win XP just Start > Control Panel and Power Options.
    Make sure Power down my hard-drive is not checked. If it is change to never, if it power downs your hard drive, or hibernates your Network adapter will drop and you pretty much have to restart the modem or re boot the computer to get back online.
