The error is "Connection to host failed." Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Suspend computer (Fn+Esc on a Dell Latitude). 2. Wait for at least 5 minutes. 3. Bring computer out of suspension. Actual Results: When I did this as a test, the connection could still be made. Expected Results: When I am working for long periods of time (30 minutes or more as a guess) when the computer is suspended, the connection often is refused when trying to check email again. I've noticed that AOL Instant Messenger also disconnects when I come out of suspended mode. So, it could be that Windows kills some connections when it goes into suspended mode. It could also be that the NIC kicks off when Windows is suspended. I have a Xircom modem/NIC combination on a Dell Latitude laptop running Windows XP.
