I presume you are referring to the setting in Connection manager to which 
Visti Andresen referred me earlier in this thread.  The WLAN idle time is set 
to Unlimited.

What is an AP?

I confess that yesterday I myself began to suspect it was something else.  I 
went away for a few hours and found on my return that both the VNC and ssh 
connections were still fine even though the N800 appeared to be sleeping 
soundly.  However, this morning I found that the VNC viewer had lost its 
connection.  I did not leave ssh connected, but attempts to connect were 
refused.  I also got no response to a ping.  To reestablish the VNC 
connection, I had to restart x11vnc because of its annoying habit of 
terminating when it loses its connection.  I'm not sure what I did to make it 
possible for ssh to connect again, but once I started using the N800, it 
mysteriously became possible both to connect by ssh and to ping.  (And the IP 
number did not change even though I am using DHCP.)  I have no idea what 
happened last night to terminate connections that did not happen during my 
afternoon break.  I will collect more data.  Perhaps others have had similar 
experiences that would shed light on the issue.
