"Sometimes the internet gets a bit sleepy and takes a nap..."

I am using the latest version of skype, and have adequete internent connectivity, however I keep getting the following message when I try to log in to skype via my Facebook log in: 

"Sometimes the internet gets a bit sleepy and takes a nap.  Make sure its up and running then we'll give it another go."

I had no issues signing in to skype yesterday--this just started today.  I use Win7 Home Premium OS.

Any advice?

I am having the same problem. I even tried setting up a second account to see what would happen. I get the same response to trying to sign in to the new account. I also had clicked sign in automatically to both accounts, but that does not happen and the sleepy interenet message comes up anyway.

Yep, just found out the solution--thank you to the skype support chat folks.  They told me to download the older version at this link:
it worked like a charm.
Hope this helps!

downloaded the older version. No result.

I start to believe it is a virus or has something to do with win 7.

Skype works fine with the Smartphone. However all trials to fix the problem on my desktop computer have failed. Has anyone found any solution?

I followed your advice and downloaded the older version as I have Windows 7, and so far things seem to be back to normal. Thanks.   I have no idea what prompted the disconnect in the first place though and now that I seem to have 2 accounts it is a bit confusing signing in here and there, but..........

Hi, Ive also just had this message now for about 3 or 4 days for no apparent reason. Did the LAN thing and downloaded an older version of Skype but still no joy...Im using Vista on a desktop PC core 2 duo...anyone got any ideas yet?
