    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to automatically disconnect internet
    connection? if it is idle for 15 mins.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    Just the Internet connectivity ? Some advanced settings on Network
    Interface Cards have adjustable "Sleep Timers". Otherwise the only
    approach is to modify the Power Savings mode of the computer and
    set the inactivity timer to 15-minutes.

    What are using to connect, cable, dial-up, ADSL, etc? Various connection
    methods have different ways to disconnect.

    Maybe if you describe (without revealing any personal information) why
    you need to, think you need to do, what you are trying to make happen
    or keep from happening, you will benefit from the experiences of
    others.

    Right now I would say to just set your system to automatically shut
    down after 15 minutes of inactivity and that will accomplish your
    stated objective.

    Hi Eric,

    Some routers have a "Disconnect when idle for..." option.
