Running 1.2.5 on Fedora 10 I notice that if I'm gone for a longer period of time +30 minutes ... my network gets disconnected.
I'm using Network Manager ...

    Same here! Ubuntu maverick x64
    Wireless gets disconnected and cannot reconnect. As if the accesspoint was gone.. the dialog for "entering the password" appears.

    This problem is also affecting Debian Wheezey (testing). When the phone is turned off mostly. What appears to be happening is that when blueproximity tries to reestablish a connection to the phone it is interfering with my laptop's ability to transmit wifi packets to the access point.

    I don't know if this is specific to the way the HP Pavillion g7 is designed.

    A simple work around is to pause blueproximity when you turn the phone off or are going to be gone for an extended time.
