Me too!

I had the same problem for a while.

I would disconnect from my ISP, the line would be open, and then it would automatically reconnect. People kept telling me that they could never get through on my one (1) phone line. I know I'm on the internet too much, but they were talking crazy. Then, one day, I disconnect, pick up the phone and start dialing a friend, and all of a sudden, I hear the modem kicking in!

How'd I fix it? I had my modem set up to automatically connect when an application needed it. I never quit any of my applications (I only use sleep), so it would just reconnect because my internet apps and mail were running.

Now, I manually connect to the internet, but still keep my apps running.

I don't know if this is the way it's supposed to work, but that's how I stopped it.
