When putty gets connection broken (whether by losing connectivity or e.g. by hibernating computer) it displays annoying message box "Network error: Software caused connection abort".

Is there some way to turn this off? I am quite capable of noticing "Putty (inactive)" text in title bar of putty window, thank you very much. I searched through all the options and can't find anything to turn this annoying message box off. Is there something in registry maybe?

Your question prompted me to look through the source code for PuTTY, and in short the answer is no. (for the windows version at least, which was the one I looked at) I suppose you could edit the code and compile it if you really wanted to.

Well I have added just this (and another) capability to PuTTY: :-) – LetMeSOThat4U Sep 11 '13 at 13:22
