Host works fine at first but later becomes unreachable

I searched for this problem on the forum but couldn't find an answer...

My host will work just fine, but then, if I try to connect the next day, it becomes unreachable. It will not become reachable until I actually visit the host machine and log into it. I have the host machine set so it will not shut down. So not sure why it keeps doing this. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Lisa

Hello,

Perhaps, the hard drive goes to sleep. Please, check your power settings in the Windows Control Panel on the remote machine.

Ah! Likely that was it. I'll write back if it happens again, but otherwise thank you!
