Default Network Question w/ Vista

Everytime I step away from my computer for a few hours, my computer goes into a type of stand-by. My power light on my PC case flashes and when I move my mouse, it comes back on. However, in the tray bar, my network icon always goes to "Identifying..." and I have to Diagnose & Repair everytime, it gets annoying because I leave my IM's up and it kicks me off.

Anyone know how to turn this off? I know theres such options as in XP, but I cant seem to find them in Vista to solve this particular problem.
