Disconnect network Drive

MrMay asked

I need some help...
I have a mapped drive which I mapped to my users using a batch file. (active directory)  
The users see the mapped drive after they login, but after about 20 mins of not browsing the mapped drive, the drive disconnects. When the user's click this drive it takes about 30 or so seconds before they can browse it again.
Any idea why its dropping the connection?  see attached  
This is not just a problem for one user.. its for multiple users
