- Screen Saver is activated, wait time is 30 minutes

- ZoneAlarm Program control/Automatic Lock/ Custom Lock settings is set to:
Lock when screensaver activates

- I'm connected to the Internet, and 2 Programs are running, I go away from my des
for 40 minutes, When I return I find that I'm no longer connected to the Internet, an
those 2 running programs are disconnected too

- My question is: Is there any Advanced settings that I could apply to my 'ZoneAlarm Firewall' to kee
me Connected even when above settings : The Screen Saver, and The Custom Lock Settings apply an
remain in place ?? (If Possible

- What are the recommanded settings for: Firewall/Internet Zone Security, FireWall Trusted Zone Security
and The "Advanced" settings in that Page Or in any other Setting Page that could be applied to (in My Case) ?
