when you disconnect, the session remains open until it expires on the server (per the server's policy).

Logging off immediately ends the session on the server.

In other words, when you disconnect, the server's resources are still in use until the session expires. Logging off immediately frees the server's resources.

You can see an example of this by opening a program, then disconnecting. If you immediately log back in, your previously opened application will still be running where you left it. Pretty handy feature if you were to lose your internet connection while in the middle of something.

In that same scenario, logging off would close the application.

in real simple terms the disconnect is like a "standby" mode, when you connect again all your programs will still be open, and thus your session is still running.
