Win 10 OES client sleep disconnects

We are rolling out a new Win10 image based on build 1803. Client OES2SP4 IR10 is being installed post image. We have a power management policy that sleeps the PC after a period of unuse. The policy does not hibernate the PC. We are having problems where the sleep seems to break authentication with the server and when the machines wakes up the user cannot access their network drives or send iprint jobs without relogging or rebooting. Are there client or windows settings that I can tweak to resolve this problem?
Thanks,
Aaron

    Take a lan trace on the pc and see if when you awake the pc if there's
    any ncp traffic. Depening on that answer:

    1. Watchdog can help. See tid 7004848

    2. you may be seeing something similar to tid7015928

    3. Do not shut down the net interface in your policy

    Mysterious' item 3 is probably the issue. We have found that MS likes
    to put the NIC to sleep and that causes this issue.

    I'm investigating these suggestions. Right now I am testing some OES client settings that were recommened. I am using a ZCM device power policy and I don't see any way to specify network states in that policy.

    It appears that Microsoft for some reason did not make it easy to
    manage the NIC power settings. I looked for solutions for quite a
    while. Ended up pushing a powershell script in a bundle. But if you
    find a better method, please share it.
