offline files my docs redirect

We recently setup up my docs redirect to our Windows 2003 Standard server.  We are also using offline files so the sync happens on logon and logoff.  My question is are there any intervals for the sync to take place or is it just when you logoff and back on?  Is there a way to automate the sync to happen every 10 minutes or every hour?  I know that you can right click my documents folder or any other folder under my docs and click sync.  I am just worried about my laptop users that work on some files and then decide to run out unexpectedly and their laptops are not synced.   I found out that I can use synchonization manager to do this.  I posted a word doc and wanted to find out if this will work.  Would the schedule I set in the word doc begin each day at 6 am and run every 2 minutes?  I want this to be permanent.

Why does it matter if a laptop user has to leave?  They close their laptop and go, continue work at home and when they come back to the office it will synch the file they were working on or any others that they have changed.  When they open their laptop and a network connection is made the synch will happen automatically.

Got that.  Still want to know if the doc I sent is working the way I think it is.   Every 2 minutes and running every day for 13 hours starting at 6am.

When a user creates a new file it is created on the server and not copied back to the computer until it syncs.  We are using offline files.  So what if the file is created on the server and the user unplugs their laptop from the network and leaves before they have synced, will there be a copy of the file on therir machine?

The files are actually on the laptop, if you have offlijne files enabled.  Lets say your My Documents are redirected to Z: drive, even while not connected to the network I can access My Documents that points to Z: drive.
