SMB protocol won't wake up after system sleep

HP Recommended
Pavilion 590-p0044
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This is a brand new system, sharing a LAN with another new HP system, both connected by wire to a Linksys 13970 router. We also have two new laptops connected wirelessly to the same router. Every one of those systems is accessing the USB drive folder shares connected to that router (SMB 1.0 protocol). However, my system alone loses that protocol upon waking from sleep. All the other systems can reconnect with no trouble after sleep, but this tower somehow loses that protocol and cannot see any of the other systems sharing that protocol via the router. So far, to restore that connection, I either have to reboot every time, or prevent the system from going to sleep.


HP support has already refused to help, so I was wondering if someone could tell me how to restart that SMB service, perhaps using Powershell or something like that. I don't know quite what the incantation would be for that in Windows (I could do it with Linux, but that's another story).
