System: Windows 7 Pro x64
I've three network drives mapped (remote machine = Linux server) and mostly I put my Windows PC into hibernation rather then shutdown down every time.
When, after resuming, I start an application which immediately tries to connect to a path of one of the remote drives, it fails because they're not yet connected.
Once I open Windows Explorer and wait a second or two, I literally see the drives being connect that second.
So right now, every time after resuming from hibernation I want to start an application immediately which accesses these drives, I need to open Windows Explorer first and wait shortly; then I can close Explorer again of course.
It doesn't seem to be a big issue, however it annoys the heck out of my that Windows doesn't just connect the drives right away and that it kind of waits for my user interaction to proceed.
Although I think it's really more then "user interaction". When I resume and do not open Windows Explorer for e.g. 15 minutes and start up an application trying to access a network drive immediately, it still doesn't work.
Windows seems to literally sit there and waits until I open Windows Explorer to realize to re-connect those drives ...
