    Hi all,

    It might be a very stupid question but how do I automaticly reconnect my network shares after my mac went to sleep?
    At boot I also would like to connect to my networkdrives automaticly, but dont know how. Is there something like reconnect at next boot?
    Thank you all in advance.

    Thanks Joe!
    This is quite a hard solution for this simple task but at least there is one.. Hopefully Leopard will have a integrated "klick and play" solution in the near future.
    Thanks again.

    Forgot to mention the easiest solution: Uncheck "Put hard drives to sleep whenever possible" under energy settings. On my Macbook as long as I leave the lid open the computer will sleep but the drives remain connected. If I shut the lid, though, the drives disconnect. I'm new at this too so I'm not sure what the difference is between "lid open" sleep and "lid shut" sleep.
