Both Windows and your Internet Service Provider can be actively transferring small amounts of data even if you are not actively using your connection. This information could include notifications of new e-mail, general protocol data to keep your connection functioning or updates to the system time, the list is endless. TICK attempts to adjust for some of this information and under certain circumstances this may cause any of the auto disconnect features to malfunction. Symptoms include either displaying the disconnect option when an active connection is being processed or not displaying the disconnect screen at all. It is suggested that you test these features of TICK to ascertain their reliability with your ISP / configuration before using/relying on them.
