Cannot reconnect to mapped drives after Win7 wakes

Have an issue with two laptops. Both are HP but different models. When these units go to sleep and are wakened, you cannot reconnect to the mapped drives. If you try to log back on without rebooting, you get an error of what is basically it cannot find the server. One of the machines I upgraded to the latest Novell client (SP3 IR6) the other is still on SP3 IR3. The one with IR6 has been able reconnect for quite some time. Didn't worry about because it is the machine I use and do not regularly need to have access to the mapped drives. The other worked until last Wednesday when the video malfunctioned and made a small change in the video settings and rebooted.

If this helps the computers are HP Elitebooks. One is an 8460p, the other an 8570p.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Change power save settings so that it does not power down the NIC.

Works with one (Intel wireless NIC) but that system now gets the blue screen about ncpl.sys when it awakens almost every time. The other system has a Broadcomm wireless NIC. I didn't see a power save feature to turn off on it in the driver settings.

There is an FTF that you can get from Novell for this. The fix will be in
the next client update. Ask for 864467#c2 if you can open an SR.

Not quite. I just went to that download link and it says "This is no
longer available for download because it is obsolete".

Looks like Novell pulled it due to another issue. We tested it yesterday and it fixed our Win7 waking issue here but until Novell says it's good to go we're not deploying.
