Hi. When you initially map the drive, check the box to reconnect at logon and also for connect using different credentials, then fill in the user/pass of the remote machine.

Would this by any chance coincide with the other computer(s) being in sleep mode or turned off? If so it's perfectly normal.

Jacee is correct, those shortcuts need to be made a certain way or they won't work correctly. The tutorial shows you how.
