How do we decide when to connect and disconnect among more than one hotspot? As a specific example, a user connects wirelessly to their wifi signal at home. The user can turn off the computer, turn on the computer, use when on and at home and visit the internet any time. The user can stay connected and always use his computer as set for the home hotspot connection. It is like the computer is set to always be connected when at home with the computer in operation.

Later, the user can take his computer (yes, same computer, actually laptop using a battery) to a local hotspot away from home. User can turn on the computer, and then can choose to connect to the local hotspot; but does this user need to DISCONNECT from the home hotspot before CONNECTING to the new wifi hotspot? OR, can this user just maintain how the computer was set when at home, and choose to connect to the new hotspot without first performing any disconnection action from the home hotspot?

You will be well out of range of your home network. You'll be disconnected automatically.
