    I have the following problem -
    I like to manually connect and disconnect from the internet... I've heard
    that it is the safest way to protect myself from unauthorized access, but
    anyway, this is what happens:
    - I manually connect, and disconnect when I want to work only on my hard
    drive.
    - I may decide to walk away for some time, and put my laptop in sleep mode
    - when I come back and recover from sleep mode, my wireless network
    connection to the internet is restored.
    - I would like to change the setting somehow so that again, if I want to
    reconnect to the internet I do so at my will.
    Using Vista Home Edition Premium - Any one have any thoughts on this?? Thanks!
