I recently bought a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B and started to set it up. I followed some tutorials and finally was able to access it remotely without having to plug it to a monitor, a keyboard, a mouse...
Everything is okay but it just bothers me a little bit that whenever I reboot it or I don't use it for some time I have to ping it on the computer before being able to control it remotely. If I don't ping it, connection fails.
I thought that maybe it was in some kind of "sleep" mode, but when searching for it I found out that it doesn't have that feature. So I was wondering if someone could help me, maybe soemone could help me fixing this or coming up with something to ping it every 5-10 minutes for example.
It's not a big problem but is something I'd like to be solved. Thank you for your attention!
UPDATE: Just did a clean installation and now it works fine and can be accessed remotely at any time. Thanks to anybody that tried to help!
