    Windows 7 network drives not available after resume

      When resuming from sleep in W7, a users mapped network drivers are often unavailable. In other words when they try to connect to the drive a message pops up saying the network location cannot be found. Instead of the green bar showing how much disk space is used they simply see NTFS. This only happens on the onboard Intel nics, machines with Broadcom chipsets don't appear to have a problem and I can put the machine to sleep and resume it all day and the drives are accessible instantaneously. It seems to be especially prominent with the 82567LM chipset. I'm using the built-in W7 drivers and will try the latest Intel ones. Switching the checkbox to 'not turn off the device' does not have an effect.
