Usually I minimize my Outlook 2013 in system tray and it works well, but after I sleep my PC and later wake it up, the connectivity of my Outlook turns to be "DISCONNECTED", then I have to re-launch it to solve this problem. Is there a better way?

Easiest way is to just toggle Work Offline Alt>S>W

Work offline mode

When you toggle it off it will tell outlook to disconnect when you toggle it back on it will tell outlook to try and reconnect to the server

This is not a perfect solution but Alt>S>W, Alt>S>W is a lot quicker then re-initializing outlook
