what is playerIO server behavior when the user loose the connection? Let's say I have logged in successfully and then I pull out the network cable, am I still logged in? Will I stay logged in for ever or there is a timeout?

Now, it seems a little bit weird for me that the client would stay valid for ever, but I do not find any way to check the validity of a client connection!

My guesses are:

the client object retains all the login information and try to login automatically on the next operation
the next operation return an error

Calling Connect or QuickConnect results in a Client object, but not an active network connection, so pulling the network cable does nothing.

Joining a multiplayer room results in an active connection though, and if you pull the cable there, the user will be disconnected when the connection times out.
