It prefectly natural that a client PC will drop a connection to a remote network share when not in use.

There are ways to control this behavior in the client PC, but most folks just leave it alone, and just let the PC do what it wants.

Is this behavior causing some kind of problem (other than confusion)

Do you use Offline Files?
What OS are you using, does it have the latest SP installed?

Really?  I've seen lots of situations where the network drive "appears" to be offline, but as soon as you try to use it, it connects.   So, it has never caused a problem with any application, script, or user interface.

Are you saying that's not the case... that either A) the drive letter do not magically reconnect when needed?, or B) your software does work unless the drive are fully connected prior to use?

So, this is like part of a Login Batch file or item in the Startup group?

If so, it might just be an issue of timing...  making the network connection before your app starts  (and might not have anything to do with disconnection)
