   As per auto-dial; install MS Plus! or Internet Explorer, and check out
   the Internet control panel. You then tell it to disconnect after some
   amount of in-activity (20 minutes by default).

     * 8.7.1. How do I DISABLE auto-disconnect? 
       
   Auto-disconnect does have one dumb bug; unless you're performing
   active surfing in Internet Explorer (Other apps it just ignores), the
   disconnect timer will activate. This includes when you're downloading
   large files via FTP, and not doing any other mouse clicking. Pretty
   dumb.
   
   Turn it off in the new Internet control panel, that shows up when you
   install Internet Explorer, or MS Plus.
