    it's because your computer is asleep clearly.
    you move your mouse waking up your computer and therefor reconnecting to the internet.
    It would be sweet if someone knew a way to make it so when your computer goes to sleep it dosen't disconnect from the internet.

    Look in System Preferences -> Energy Saver. You can tell it never to sleep the computer or turn the hard drives off in there.
