I have several network drives. I am on a laptop and whenever I disconnect from my dock (wired connection) it automatically closes any open folders connected to a network drive...

My wireless kicks in a few seconds later, and I have to go through the trouble reopening them all!

Is there a registry setting I can set to prevent this?

One more question:

If I turn the PC on outside of work, it doesn't connect these drives, and thus will prevent them from showing even when I go in and connect to the network. I have to connect them MANUALLY every time.

Is there an easy solution, such as a script I can run from my quick launch that will reconnect all of them?
