If I try to connect (over Windows file sharing) to a machine that has gone to sleep, I get a timeout followed by "The network path was not found". If I then wake the machine and try again, I still get "The network path was not found" because the connection failure has been cached. If I wait 30 seconds from the initial failure (I've timed this) and then try again I can connect successfully.
I understand this behaviour. My question is: is there any way to shorten the delay before I can try the connection again?
