Disconnecting from the Cloud
Disconnecting from the cloud is more like locking your computer. All of the programs will remain open until you log back in. In some cases there may be a time out on disconnected users and you will be logged off automatically, so be sure to save your work before you disconnect. Often, users spend hours on a document, only to find that is was never saved. If a sign-out occurs or your profile locks up, you can potentially lose what you were working on.
Over time, “disconnecting” leaves resources open (like memory and CPU), and takes away from the total pool of resources of your Cloud Server. After several weeks or months, your profile may perform slower and you can experience random errors and issues. In most cases signing out and back in will correct these issues. To sign out you can follow any of the methods listed on the Cloud Desktop log off instructions, or Cloud Apps log off instructions.
