Windows 7: Keeping network turned on after suspend mode

Keeping network turned on after suspend mode

Hello, this is my first post in here and I hope that it be at right forum. My problem is: I have a desktop pc and a notebook, and both makes part of my homegroup, however, desktop is the default pc on my network, that would be a "server", and it is configured to enter in suspend mode after 30 minutes, the default configuration of win7. This is my problem: when my desktop enter in suspend mode, I'm not able to access my files and libraries from my notebook.

Is it possible to keep a network always enabled even in suspend mode or Windows never can enter in suspend mode if I want to be able to access my network and homegroup? I will prefer to have an option to keep network enabled and accessible but with Windows in suspend mode to save energy, but if that is not possible, ok too.

Thank you everybody.

That would be the "wake on lan" setting that needs to be adjusted or enabled. The link below explains how to set this up.
