Drooh, you may want to look at the permissions on the folders themselves. After configuring the permissions properly, the best way to test to see if you can read and write to those folders is to try the UNC path from the local machine. start>run>\\%hostname%\%sharename% Hope that helps.
That is very strange indeed, does the computer go into suspend mode, or hibernation? Is it a wireless laptop that drops a connection? What does the system event viewer say? (Right click "My computer" and select manage)

ok its doing it again. here is what is happening.
on my main pc I have a few shortcuts on my desktop that link to the share on the slave machine.
the 1st link is just to the computer itself, when i dbl click it this is the error I get. \\slave-machine is not accesible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Windows cannot find the network path. Verify that the network path is correct and the destination computer is not busy or turned off. If windows still cannot find the network path, contact your network administrator.
on the slave machine I opened up comp management/sys tools/ event viewer and these are a few of the errors listed.
under aplication - info The timeout waiting for the performance data collection function "PerfProc" in the "C:\WINNT\system32\perfproc.dll" Library to finish has expired. There may be a problem with this extensible counter or the service it is collecting data from or the system may have been very busy when this call was attempted.
that error is duplicated about 15-20 times.
then under system I get The server was unable to allocate a work item 341 times in the last 60 seconds.
