Whenever you disconnect from the switch the computer attached should display an error message that the network is not available.
Using a computer at the switch, in My Network Places, will show you which computers are on line. To make it display an error massage Map the Network drives first. When you unplug the computer the error will display note that, that computer is unavailable. If you have a notebook computer that would be convenient.
I hope I am not confusing the issue.
