Windows 7: Network Location Folder Authentication Timing Out?

Network Location Folder Authentication Timing Out?

Hi all,

I'm having an issue keeping my Network Location folder connected to a Sharepoint site. Initially I can configure and use my network location folder. But after a few minutes not using it my network folder gives the error "Access Denied. Before opening files in this location, you must first add the web site to your trusted sites list, browse to the web site, and select the option to login automatically."

I've added the site to my trusted sites list. I'm not thinking that is the issue to begin with though, because I can created and use the connection until it's idle.

From IE, I've selected for the site to remember me, and its not asking me for my credentials.

Anyone have any ideas or thoughts?

Thanks for the help!
