Deal with sleep mode properly for tablet environments
When a tablet or PC goes into sleep mode any active form looses its connection to the database backend (I am using SQL Server). This is very annoying in tablet environments where the PC is frequently switched to sleep mode. Make it so that Access can detect a reawaken from sleep and refresh the connection automatically rather than leave an error so that the user doesn't have to log off and reload the screen.

I agree, we have this same issue especially with 4g enabled devices. Our work around has been to remote desktop into virtual machines that are running the access client. They are constantly connected to the sql server and they always have a fast stable connection.
