What VPN are you using?  I use IPsec (NCP) and I need merely connect it via a desktop icon. I am using Windows 8.1.

I never use PPTP.  See if there is a dialer setting to "not connect automatically"  There should be, and that will stop the connection until needed. Conversely, the other setting should allow an automatic connection.

Test by removing the password and allowing it to pop up.

There should be a connection setting but running it the way you have will work also.
