    I relatively new to mac's and I travel quite a bit with my 13" MBP. I've noticed that when I stay at hotels, the ones you open Safari and are greeted with a Hotel login page. I don't know if it's something with the way macs work, Safari works or the way the hotels internet works. But it seems like whenever my MBP sits for a minute or two and I come back I'm always having to login to the hotels internet login page.

    The reason this strikes me as odd is that whenever I'm using the Windows 7 thru Bootcamp I can go for about 24 hours without having to login again even if it sits for a little while in between.

    Can someone shed some insight about this?
