I am receiving increasingly more questions from users wondering why someone is connecting and disconnecting frequently. It appears this happens when there computer hibernates or gets locked. Since our security folks are pushing everyone to lock their computers anytime they leave the keyboard, this is becoming more frequent. It would not be a problem if it disconnected when the computer is locked and connected back when the computer gets unlocked, but it appears that during the time the computer is locked it connects and disconnects sometimes as frequently as every second or two. If the person is in your contact list, you see a constant popping up of that message.

Is there anything that will prevent this from happening?
