when user disconnects in SSMS, but SSMS is not totally closed, the user is still hanging in the one of the SPID as sleeping.

Is this default behavior?

if ssms window is totally closed then the process goes away.

thanks

yes its a default behaviour, SQL manage it internally.

These will go away after some time when it will run its internal process. the connection pool from a single web server usually keeps 10 processes open. This is for performance improvement.
