Yes, sleep mode was enabled.  It did take some work to get it to disable. I ended-up having to 'ifconfig eth0 down' and 'rmmod eepro100' then 'insmod eepro100' then run 'eepro100-diag -G 0 -w -w -f' then when I called 'eepro100-diag -ee -f' it finally didn't say sleep mode was enabled. no matter what I do I always seem to need the -f flag. if I just shut down eth0 and didn't rmmod/insmod then the sleep mode setting wouldn't stick.
But in the end it worked great, I finally have an uptime > 4 hours! :)
Many thanks for the assistance!
