    Hi-hope you can help!Every 30 minutes my macbookpro pops up a message-"This is your reminder that your connection remains active.Do you wish to stay connected?"-If I don't click the 'Stay connected' button I lose the connection.This is very frustrating if I'm downloading large files.
    How do I turn this off?
    Thank You all out there!!

    Erm... :confused:

    What kind of connection do you have? Are you using a VPN, a cellular modem, or dial-up? Or some kind of specialized software? I've never seen that warning before. Come to think of it, not even on VPN or cellular modem.
