I have had a similar problem and found this during some searches. I
havent tried it yet but will try on monday in the login scripts
SYMPTOMS: You find that the network drive mapping may be disconnected after
15 minutes of inactivity and Windows Explorer may display a red "X" on the
icon of the mapped drive. However, if you double-click it reconnects
RESOLUTION: by default, idle connections will be dropped after 15 minutes.
To modify idle time, at a command prompt using net config server
/autodisconnect: minutes. For example, to set the Autodisconnect value to
30 minutes, you would run the following command line: net config server
/autodisconnect:30. If you would like to turn Autodisconnect off, do net
config server /autodisconnect:-1.
