Network Auto-Disconnect

Windows has a network auto-disconnect function that will do an OSI Layer 1 disconnect after 15min, to save power presumably. This can cause problems with certain applications, namely Outlook in some cases - that will start doing some strange things and will return to normal only after restarting the program.

A solution is to disable this feature by running the following in an administrator cmd session.

net config server /autodisconnect:-1

To make it permanent we need to edit the registry:
There should be a dword named "autodisconnect"
Set the value to 0xFFFFFFFF
