thanks Warren. I can't see how it would go to sleep mid-transfer. I
can see from iostat transfers going continuously and at great speeds
and then the error happens. the backup software is not stalling at the
source or anything.

I will try your suggestion later. currently every test means hanging
and rebooting a working server and is a bit of a pain. 8(
