Not sure if there already is a solution for this:
When I choose "Offline" as Notes location, I'd like to prevent Sametime from searching for servers. "Offline" - in my cases - means there is no network in reach.
Unfortunately Sametime does not care and searches for servers, It blocks my Notes client for a (short) while and gives a modal dialog I have to click away.
a) a checkbox per location: "Prevent Sametime from searching for servers"
b) let Sametime run in a separate thread which does not block the whole Notes client
and / or
c) replace the modal dialog ("could not attach to...") by an icon or coloured message string within the Sametime window?
