Hi Folks:

I have a bit of a curious problem here.  I have a Fedora Core 4 P4 HT
box with a Intel Pro/1000 NIC in it that seems to go to sleep at random
times.  If I try to SSH to it, or access the web site that it serves
(it's a snort box and it serves BASE) I get no response, but if I ping
it, I can get it.  I am beginning to wonder if FC4 has some new feature
that is powering down or autosleeping the card or something.  Can
someone suggest a solution or at least where to look
