Office 365 and Mapping a drive to Sharepoint

With our new O365 E3 site, we're pleased with the capabilities.

When running from our desktops we prefer to have a mapped drive letter to sharepoint and also to SkyDrive Pro.

We've followed the setup articles and logged in to the site with "Keep me logged in".  Made the site trusted and added the sites and lync, microsftonline, sharepoint & outlook.com etc. to trusted sites and local sites.

When I open a site in O365 sharepoint and go to library and choose Open with explorer I can browse the site and use my drive mapping.

If I close the site or login to the site but do not go to libary and/or open with explorer I cannot use my mapped drive letters.

Am I missing something or is this the only way i can make that work.

Thanks
Bruce

Sorry to say that does not address my question.  I will restate the question differently.

Can a drive mapping be made to the sharepoint or skydrive pro folders and used repeatedly day after day with having to go to the web based "open in explorer" ?  

I understand the necessity for having to log in to the site and check keep logged in and the need to do the initial setup.

Well this is exactly what the two KB articles there are about. You need to:

1) make sure you have all the updates and run the desktop setup
2) add the site to Trusted sites
3) add the site to LOCAL INTERNET
4) check if the service is running and set to automatic
