Prevent Pulse client from resuming connection after a laptop get out of sleep mode

Hello,
noticed that if the laptop was put into sleep mode while the pulse is connected , the pulse will automatically try to re-initiate the connection when the laptop is up again.
Is it a normal behavior when the pulse client automatically try to re-initiate the connection when the device get out of sleep mode ?
Do you know if there is an option to prevent client from resuming connection when the device get out of sleep mode ?
Do you know if the option "Reconnect at Session Timeout or Deletion" correspond to our use case, can be use in case of sleep mode ?
Regards.

I would also like to know how to drop/disconnect when a laptop connects to particular subnets via UTP or dockingstation

Yes, it is designed to connect after waking from sleep.
The option that you are referring to will only be beneficial if the session has timed out (this may require aggressive timers to make sure the connection idles out)

No, it is not possible to prevent a connection based on the appliance the end client is connected against. It _may_ be possible to use location awareness rules to disable the tunnel if those are only used in specific networks; but currently the answer to the specific question is no.

So I guess there is not a way to stop this feature ?, issue my cleint is having if they are in a remote location they sleep the laptop then they come into the corportate network open the laptop and then the vpn reconnects causing issues. So would be nice to have a setting to disable auto connect when reviving from sleep

yes, there is no way to prevent this.
you can test with location awareness rules as that should cause the connection to disconnect after the reconnect happens
