"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

sharepoint like other websites is a state-less item.. Users are connected only for short periods of time (during a get or a post) otherwise they are not connected. when a server does a post-back to update a page it must first check to see if they are still connected by reading a cookie or other process then it will update the page (this is done in the background)
