internet explorer inactivity causes application to slow

We have an application that loads through internet explorer.  You connect to an internal address and a java applet is installed and runs.  If you close the original ie window the application closes.  

Heres the problem.  there is a transactional workstation that is used maybe 3 times a day.  the app is started first thing in the morning and if the workstation has sat with the app open and not used for an hour or so, the application takes forever to retrieve information from the database (once it connects the first time it is fine for a few minutes afterwards).  Other workstations on our network will go hours between accessing the database and when they go to use it, its snappy.  this seems to be because they surf the web at times during the day.  the one workstation who only does transactions,,, its like it falls asleep or something.  all power options are turned off to never.  
I have talked to the database provider and they are positive its not on their side and they have no guidance.

I would be inclined to think this was due to authentication and connections specifics between the db and the IE window.

You will normally find with interfaces to dbs that the first time an interrogation or connection is made it takes longer and then subsequent ones are much fatser. this is due to the "handshake" between teh interface an dthemachine taken place, it know teh location of the db and they are already authenticated together so it gets straight to the data pull/push.

Afetr a period of inactivity the tie up is lost and so the handshake process has to be reapplied and would indicate why after tim eth einital call up again takes longer than subsequent ones.

i may be wrong there but that my experience with db's in laymans terms
