Default closing laptop disconnects internet

I have a dsl connection on my laptop and I just leave my internet connected at all times, but when I close my computer, the internet disconnects.

Is there any way to keep the internet connected if my computer closes?

Your laptop, right? If it's xp, it's standing by when you close the lid, which will 'put things to sleep'. If you want to disable this, go to start/settings/control panel/power options. Go to advanced and under the setting "When I close the lid of my portable computer" choose "do nothing".

Careful though, most laptops do quite a bit of venting through the keyboard.
