Jumping through hoops for Spotify.

If I leave my computer for several hours, or it goes into hibernation mode, my audio programs Spotify and/or Media Monkey become weirdly unable to play audio tracks. What gives? Windows XP

With Media Monkey, it appears to search through my archive and can't find any of the tracks I was playing, or any other tracks (it shows them in the library, but appears to not be able to find them on the hard drive). If I close Media Monkey, everything starts back to normal.
With Spotify, it just won't budge. If I click on a track, whether my local library, or a streaming track, nothing happens. I'm still able to search for things but I can't click on a track. If I shut Spotify and restart it, it still doesn't work. If I restart the computer it works fine.
All my music is on a separate internal hard drive on my desktop. Running Windows XP. Computer functions really well otherwise (knock on wood).
