    I ate lunch the other day at chick-fil-a and used their free WiFi. A few nights later I ate dinner there and left the sp3 in the car. The strange thing is when I got home I opened the sp3 to find about 30 ie windows open with the accept the terms of chick-fil-a free WiFi. Did it wake up in the case? Is this a connected standby thing?

    You may have ticked "Connect automatically" when you first connected. Your SP3 may have merely been following orders...

    Well its more a chick-fil-a thing moreso than a connected standby problem. Each time it connected it opened up a new browser window. You can choose to forget the network or open up your GPS and choose a route that doesn't pass a chick-fil-a

    I believe they're called Black and White Hats.
