    If you are using a screen saver then right click on the Desktop and select Properties, Screen saver tab and remove the check next to "On resume, display Welcome screen".
    Click Apply and OK.

    I am even win7 operation and tested the configuration by using balanced power scheme. If my screen light, I do not have access to the network of nothing. However, if anything the cause; to go to sleep, the network falls. Also another problem, but if you have your system to return starting from screen saver with ctrl + alt + del to try to turn and to see whether it still occurs.

    If still having problems, go to the properties of the network adapter. Under Power Management, you should be able to disable it from turning of the device to save power. Had this same issue myself.
