Issue #1 - I have an Asus(can't remember the exact model name) with 4 gigs of memory, running on 64 bit Win 7 Home edition that is 11 months old. When I try to VPN in to my work computer, it logs me in and I can use my remote PC for about 3 minutes, then my Asus hangs up. I have to reboot it by holding down the power button. I brought my laptop to my office one day and compared it to an HP laptop running on Win 7 Ultimate edition. Both laptops are using Shrewsoft VPN client version 2.1.7. The HP laptop do not have a problem vpn'ng to my work PC. My Asus have the same issue. I uninstalled the vpn client and reinstalled it with the same effect. I ran several utilities and it didn't find any problem with the memory, no walware and virus was found.
Issue #2 - in troubleshooting the Asus laptop, I installed SP1. I then noticed that my laptop then shuts down after sometime which I found out when I tried to ftp to it from work. Don't know if this is related to SP1. My laptop at home is using a laptop cooler, so I don't think it is overheating. The power setting is set to sleep at 30 minutes.
