    I ran into something really weird this morning.

    I am running a WSE 2012 domain with a couple of domain members. This morning I woke up one of the clients and found the MePo homescreen to be frozen, showing the time of yesterday evening when I had switched off TV.

    The PC itself was still reactive, i.e. taskbar etc. functioning, and a closer insepction then revealed that the server shares were not available to this client. The attempt to access them in Explorer through \\server\... prompted an error message that this client was not allowed to connect. Further analysis revelaed that the network connection had switched to "private network" instead of "domain network" :confused:. Upon reboot the PC was again connected as expected in a domain network.

    As this is a HTPC the client resume operation runs with autologon, for which credentials have been applied through netplwiz. I am completely confused and wonder what could be happening that the PC resumes from standby without connecting to the domain network.
