FMP11 and Lion OS

In both a client site and my own office, several new Macs were purchased with Mac OS X Lion on them. After installing FMP 11.0v4, we have all noticed that the connection is dropped to FMS after a period of inaction. FMP doesn't quit, it just reports the connection was lost and the files are closed. In my office, not such a big deal.

 

In the client office, they open FMP first thing in the morning and work in it and other programs throughout the day. Losing connection and having to log in mutiple times during the day is defintely an inconvenience to staff.

 

Is there a setting that is causing this or is this just a Lion/FM situation? The FMS server in the client site is version 10, in my site - FMS version 11.

 

BTW, this is not the setting within the admin console that disconnnects a client after a certain period of idle time. Other Macs in the office are still on OS X 10.6.8 and they do not experience the disconnect.

 

Your experience, thoughts and advice are appreciated.

 

Regards,

 

Michele
