If this is my database connection, does the (postgres) database connection automatically closes itself when the perl script ends or exits?  I guess I just need a yes/no answer, but if you have additional info you can share, go ahead.

my $dbh = DBI->connect("dbi:Pg:dbname=smis;host=$Host", "$User", "$Password", { RaiseError => 1, AutoCommit => 1 });

If you don't properly close the connection (by $dbh->disconnect), postgres DB will keep the connection alive for a while until it times out. So it is a better practice to close the DB connection as soon as you are done with it.
