i have a brand new windows 2008 R2 standard server.  3 laptops that were on home premium and upgraded them to 7 pro.  joined them to domain that i had setup with active directory on the server.  setup folder redirection and thats works fine.  i redirected the desktop, docs, pics,music, videos.  

The problem is im not sure what to setup as a gpo to have all the files that are redirected, available on the laptops for when they leave the office they have all their info.  i have been searching and have not found much.  do i enable background sync?  do i not need to setup anything and it will do it?

As soon as i kick the wireless off, the desktop icons disappear and i cannot read any of their data until i turn on the wireless again.  i assume i need offline files working?  how do i accomplish this?
