    Go to System Preferences/Network/Internal Modem/PPP/PPP Options and you should have an option to tell your computer how and when you want it to connect/disconnect.

    Okay, when you hit PPP options on System Preferences, you should get a window that pops up which looks like the one below, chech/uncheck the ones that pertain to what you want to tell it to do and there ya go.[​IMG]
